Electra is a well-loved, beautiful, highly intelligent teenager. Yet, as is not uncommon, she becomes so depressed she contemplates suicide, considering it for years until she finally takes action. Electra's diary, discovered after her death and presented here by a psychiatrist, reveals her first-person reflections through to her fatal college year, showing how thought distortions are caused and how they chip away at self-esteem and the will to survive. In addition to enlightening professionals and aspiring professionals, this work will empower parents to identify and address growing dimensions in their children's development, and understand the struggles they face. And the end result is that Electra's diary teaches us all a lot about changes that are needed so that we can develop effective suicide prevention and treatment strategies, says author Millie Osborne, M.D. Suicide is now a public health crisis. It is the third leading cause of death for youths aged 15 to 24, and the fourth leading cause of death for children aged 10 to 14. As author Osborne explains, Existing approaches to preventing youth suicide have had little impact on reducing the number of suicides and suicide attempts across America. By unveiling the private thoughts of a suicidal teenager in this unprecedented book, Osborne hopes that the legacy of Electra will be an understanding of the adolescent mind that will spur more effective means to recognize, treat, and heal those at risk, and so vastly reduce suicide among our youths.
