ONLINE support groups for teens with depression, for suicidal teens, etc. ?

I am doing a school project where I have to create a "Suicide Awareness Campaign" &I want to list three different online support groups where someone, specifically a teen, can reach out for help and advice.

A few good, active sites would be great!

Thank you!

    They have a "Forum" with message boards.

    Click on "Forum" at the top.

    "ReachOut’s story started on the other side of the world—in Australia back in 1992, when a cousin of Jack Heath, founder of Inspire, took his life. When trying to make sense of it, Jack had a vision that young people could be connected with comprehensive resources and support through the media they use. With this support, lives could be saved and young people’s mental health and well-being could be improved. Inspire Foundation was founded and with the then escalating rates of youth suicide, Inspire launched the ReachOut website in 1998." At the website, read more about how their work and website spread to the USA.

    Click first on "Support Forums" phrase within the lower "Welcome" text,

    and then scroll down to the:

    "Depression and Suicide" message board.

    http://www.suicideforum.com/forum.php

    Scroll down to the "Suicide Forum."

    Open to anyone, to include youth.

    Hope these websites, which are specific to suicide, and are resource-full, are helpful to you.
