  NBC Reports on Children’s Study that Found 1 in 5 Kids at Risk for Suicide Live in Homes with Guns
May 7, 2013

Children’s Stephen Teach, M.D., and colleagues find that a significant number of kids at risk for suicide live in homes with guns, and many know where they, and the bullets, are in the home. He says this makes for a “volatile mix” and informs parents of the signs to look for if they suspect their child is suicidal.
