This is Piper. She likes playing the violin and spends a lot of time practicing because she wants to major in music!
Change: stopped practicing Feeling: Lazy and tired!
Recently, though, she found out her mom has cancer and is really sad. She said she feels lazy and tired all the time and stopped practicing.
Threat: Wants to give up!
She told her friend Gracie about her probelms after Gracie brought them up and admitted that she feels like she has lost hope not only in music, but also in her mom. She told her that she wants to give up.
You are not alone, Piper. I am always here for you. I may not understand what you're going through, but I want to help. Are you thinking about suicide?
After talking to Piper, Gracie was very concerned about her mental health. She decided to talk to Piper's father about it, knowing that they were close and he could get her the help she needs.
