Overview

NOTE FROM TED: Please consult a mental health professional if you or a loved one is struggling with suicidal ideation. This talk only reflects the speaker's personal views and understanding of mental health. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give TEDx organizers are described in more detail here: http://storage.ted.com/tedx/manuals/t...
Skyla is a teenager who is extremely concerned about teenage suicide. She delves into why young people's layers are torn down, what happens to their self-confidence and self-worth, and why bullying has such an effect on others. All teenagers should watch this and join the fight to eliminate teenage suicide. Skyla is a previous TEDx Youth Speaker and is passionate about making a difference in the world and believes that the way to reach your goals is by hard work and determination. She loves netball, gold, Stand Up Paddle boarding, cooking and hanging with her friends. Being a teenager herself, she is very concerned about the rate of teen suicide and wants to raise awareness of this issue. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
