Teen Suicide
Teenage suicide has increased dramatically over the past decade and has been
accompanied by enhancement of the methods used in suicide. According to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there was an observed increase in suicide rates by 30%
between 2000 and 2016 (Miron, Wilf-Miron, & Kohane, 2019). Teenage suicide is engineered
by various risk factors and among them is a combination of both emotional turbulence and
social hostility. Ideally, emotional turbulence entails emotional frustrations from
environmental components that lead to unrestrained anger, emotional instability, and
frustration that can ultimately result in teenage suicide (Desrosiers, Saint-Jean, Laporte, &
Lord, 2020). Social hostility, on the other hand, is identified as the disagreements and conflicts
that arise as a result of intolerance and discrimination of an individual’s beliefs. Social
hostilities are not uncommon and the absence of the proper mediation can result in emotional
turbulence that can result in teenage suicide. As such, both emotional turbulence and social
hostility can co-occur and lead to self-harm among teens.
The reasons for teenage suicide tend to vary. While the causes of suicide are different,
they tend to cluster around the vulnerability of individuals and lack of emotional support.
Kohlberg’s theory of stages of moral development, Gilligan’s theory of caring, and Erikson’s
psychosocial stages theory offer a different framework of emotional turbulences and social
conflicts that contribute to teenage suicide. According to these theories, the various causes of
teenage suicide include; lack of social and emotional support in school, a stressful authoritative
system both at school and at home, and identity confusion. For example, Carol Gillian
advocates for proper caring for an individual (Adams, 2015). As such, the lack of
interconnectedness and a care-based culture both at school and at home can lead to emotional
frustrations. Ideally, these factors tend to fuel both social hostility and emotional turmoil that
may ultimately lead to suicide.
