New PSA targets preventing youth suicides


A startling statistic, 144 youths have taken their own lives in the past three years in Georgia.

It's those tragedies that have led to a new effort to prevent youth suicide.

That is part of a new public service announcement that will soon hit TV screens around the state. The PSA includes survivors who bravely share their stories about suicide attempts.

The Georgia Child Fatality Review Plan is behind that new ad. They were at the Georgia State Capitol on Thursday to raise further awareness.

For those who may need it or know someone who needs help, the Georgia Crisis and Access Line is there. That number is 1-800-715-4225. All calls are confidential and the line is open 24-7.
