Piece description from the artist
My newest piece of art titled simply “Watch” (Thanks Mr. Cooper!) represents what we need to do to prevent suicide among our youth. The main character represents any one of us with the power to positively affect a child suffering from depression. The ambiguous figures cloaked behind her represent the many children around the world who experience suicidal thought on a daily bases.
The CDC reports that it is the third leading cause of death for youth ages 15 to 24. The only two things that cause more death among teenagers are accidents (usually in the car) and homicide. And even younger children do not escape. Suicide is the fourth leading cause of death for young people between the ages of 10 and 141.
We all have the power to change a life for the better; suicide is such a final solution to problems that are temporary. If you know a child who may be showing signs of depression don’t ignore it!
