When its comes to to teen suicides, the most common age group is 14 to 19.
There are certain events that could trigger thoughts of suicide, such as too much pressure in school or a loss of a loved one.
And although there are some warning signs to look out for, every case is different.
"And often we will see there were some signs, yes, let me say that often it can catch us unaware and so let`s not rule out the fact that sometimes it seems to come out of the blue but most of the time they are going to be telling us something by their behaviors," says Dr. Bob Edwards.
Dr. Edwards said that depression is one of the key components that could lead a person to unstable thoughts and even thoughts of suicide.
