As a young girl (14) who has dealt with lots of suicidal and depressed teenage d girls, I can say this about the ones I deal with. 1. They have lots of friends. 2. They have problems at home. ie.

divorce, addictions, disease 3. They usually really enjoy drinking. 4. They have either been told they " re fat / ugly , or look at themselves in the mirror and think it. 5. They are obsessed over a guy.

I have 7 friends who have been suicidal/ depressed, that I know of for sure. 2 are geminis. 2 are sagittarius'. 1 is a leo.

1 is a pisces. 1 is a taurus. As you can see, 5 people are under what are considered extremely sociable and active signs. 1 is under a sign considered very emotional, and 1 under a sign considered stubborn. The 2 geminis both have serious problems at home with their parents, and have bad body. The 2 sagittarius' both get worked up over boys, have serious problems at home, and dont have good body image.

The leo has serious problems with guys, is considered an outcast at school, and fights with her parents often. The pisces has serious trust issues, due to numerous backstabbing's, and fights often with her mother. The taurus is a complete follower, and attempted suicide after not getting her way. All 7 of them have quite a few friends / aquaintances .

All 7 have problems at home. 5 of them really enjoy drinking. 4 of them think they " re really fat / ugly . 3 of them think they " re sort of fat / ugly . 5 of them have been / are obsessed over a guy. 3 of them are cutters.

2 of them have cut. 3 of them have attempted suicide. 1 of them has attempted suicide numerous times. Gemini A- has quite a few friends- has problems at home- really enjoys drinking- thinks they " re fat / ugly - has been obsessed over a guy- is a cutter Gemini B- has quite a few friends- has problems at home- really enjoys drinking- thinks they " re fat / ugly - is obsessed over a guy Sagittarius A- has quite a few friends- has problems at home- really enjoys drinking- thinks they " re sort of fat / ugly - is obsessed over a guy- is a cutter Sagittarius B- has quite a few friends- has problems at home- thinks they " re fat / ugly - has attempted suicide Leo- has quite a few friends- has problems at home- thinks they " re sort of fat/ ugly- is a cutter Pisces- has quite a few friends- has problems at home- really enjoys drinking- thinks they " re fat / ugly - has been obsessed over a guy- has cut- has attempted suicide numerous times Taurus- has quite a few friends- has problems at home- really enjoys drinking- thinks they " re sort of fat / ugly - has cut- has attempted suicide All 3 of the girls who tried killing themselves have used pills.

This is consistent with research, which shows that girls prefer using non-violent methods of killing themselves, such as pills, whereas boys usually lean to more violent methods. The ratio of boy to girl suicides is 4: 1. However, teen girls attempt suicide 4 x as often. Suicide is the 3 rd leading cause of death in 15- 24 year old peoples. It is the 6 th leading cause of death in people 5-14 years old.
