In Australia, about eight young people a week take their own lives. And, for each one of these suicides, more than thirty other young people are trying to kill themselves. Trying to escape, trying to flee - trying to leave life early. Weaving the true stories of Collin, Jason and Maz with an exploration of the high rate of youth suicide in Australia, Leaving Early examines the crucial questions: Why do so many of our young people resort to suicide? What can family and friends do to avert a tragedy? How can we recognize the signs that someone we care about is being pulled under by the tide of progress? The book also contains advice from health professionals and vital information on what to do and where to go for help in a crisis, as well as dealing with the aftermath of a suicide. Ultimately, Leaving Early finds that among the wreckage of shattered lives there is a way forward - but only if our communities are prepared to provide young people with faith in their future.
