Dr Mani Pavuluri – Presentation on Brain Circuitry & Suicidal Adolescents with Bipolar Disorder presentation from Dr Mani Pavuluri.

 

According to research, about 17 percent of school students have considered suicide seriously and 8 percent have attempted to indulge in self-harming activities. According to renowned child psychiatrist, Dr. Mani Pavuluri, teenagers suffering from acute depression or who seem excessively impulsive, often show up in the emergency rooms of hospitals.

Apart from spending money to seek professional assistance, which is obviously necessary, parents could do much when it comes to suicidal risk & prevention. If your child has been giving threats for a long time, make sure to never shrug them off as typical melodrama. Instead try talking and encouraging him or her to share feelings because bottling them up can lead to something dangerous. Arranging small gatherings so that he or she could meet people also stand helpful.

Exhibiting maximum patience is also necessary according to Dr. Mani Pavuluri because suicidal thoughts take much time to completely go away from a teenager’s mind.
