There is no single cause for suicide. Suicide most often occurs when stressors exceed current coping abilities of someone suffering from a mental health condition. Depression is the most common condition associated with suicide, and it is often undiagnosed or untreated (The Trevor Project).
Bullying continues to be a major issue in U.S. schools. Bullying is typically defined as the ongoing physical or emotional victimization of a person by another person or group of people. Today, many children become victimized through cyberbullying, where people use communication technologies to harass and cause emotional harm to victims (Suicide Prevention Resource Center).
