1 in 5 Canadian teens has considered suicide: Kids Help Phone study | CTV News

TORONTO — A new study suggests that one in five Canadian teens has seriously considered attempting suicide in the previous year.

The survey by Kids Help Phone found that 22 per cent of more than 1,300 respondents thought about taking their own life. Almost half of them had also formulated a plan.

“That is concerning,” Alisa Simon, vice-president of the national help line’s counselling services, said of the findings released Thursday.
