Unfortunately, suicide has become more and more common among teens and young adults, and recent reports from The Jason Foundation show that suicide is the second leading cause of death among the age range of 10 to 24-year-olds.
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention also revealed that in 2013, Americans died from suicide every 12.8 minutes.
For suicidal teenage girls with more access to technology than mental health resources, it feels natural to head to Tumblr for counseling and help.
So what's the problem? Well, while Tumblr has been helpful for some of the struggling young girls, these teens are suffering from legitimate health issues, and the bloggers that are helping them technically aren't certified to provide advice and counseling.
Are these unqualified "counselors" on Tumblr doing more harm than good? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
Ultimately, if you're struggling, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1 (800) 273-8255 or visit Mental Health America's website.
