This pamphlet calls for the need for increased public understanding of suicide & adolescent mental health. The issue that one should have the right to suicide is also discussed. Reasons why one should have the right to suicide, as well as some of their major proponents, are mentioned. Contemporary attitudes on this issue are given. Religion’s opinion of suicide is noted. Unfortunately, rationalizing suicide in certain cases leads to a broader assault on the value of human life. (17 refs.)
