This is the story of Aria Joy Burch-Senser – a beautiful, talented and happy young girl who will be forever frozen at age 13. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for individuals 10-24. We don’t talk to our kids enough about mental health and suicide. They are issues shrouded by stigma, and not talking about them with the young people in our lives is a major contributing factor to the statistics. Ms. Danielle sits down with mom and social worker Brittani Senser to have a conversation about youth mental health and suicide.
