Psychological Reactions to Pain
Pain is an essential biological function that signals damage in the body, prevents further damage by limiting mobility of the affected area and promotes healing. Pain can become chronic as a result of abnormal healing, additional damage or failed medical interventions.
Adolescents and Suicide
Suicidal behavioral is a significant health concern for adolescents. It is the third leading cause of death preceded only by accidents and cancer for ages 10-14, and accidents and homicide for ages 15-19 (Martin et al., 2008).
