About The Segment: Teen Suicide-
Suicide is the third biggest killer of America’s young people. With last week’s news of Rutgers student Tyler Clementi’s suicide, correspondent Jim Axelrod looks at efforts to prevent youths from taking their own lives.
He meets a young man with first-hand knowledge of what’s at stake: Ten years ago, when he was 19, Kevin Hines jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge; and is one of the very few who has survived. Since then he talks openly about how to prevent suicide.
Axelrod also meets with Cornell University’s president, Dr. David Skorton, who states that suicide needs to be faced as a mental health issue; and with Jamie Tworkowski, we see how his organization, named To Write Love on Her Arms, is reaching out to at-risk kids and listening to their fears.
