TEEN LIFELINE
Teen Lifeline started after a movie, Surviving  starring Molly Ringwald, aired on prime time network television in 1985. The movie was quite controversial because it was the first time teen suicide had been portrayed in such a public way. The movie made the cover of People Magazine and was instrumental in beginning public conversations about teen suicide. As a result, mental health agencies began to look at the problem of teen suicide. It was then discovered that Arizona’s teen suicide rate was double the national average. Arizona ranked second in the nation for the rate of teen suicide.  Something needed to be done, so Teen Lifeline was developed as an innovative solution to address teen suicide in the Phoenix area.
