E! Investigates: Teen Suicide - Laura Ling Examines This National Crisis On December 8 In Her Premiere Episode As Host Of E!'s Hit Investigative Series

"I thought if I can end this life, then people will finally care and people will stop making fun of me, because no one makes fun of someone that's dead." - Ernesto Dominguez, 16

(November 11, 2010) - In an average classroom of thirty students, six will experience depression; of those six, half will try to kill themselves. In response to statistics such as this, Laura Ling, respected journalist and host of E! Investigates, examines this tragic crisis. Speaking with teenagers who attempted suicide and family members who have lost loved ones, Ling tries to find answers to the hardest question for those left behind: why? The journalist's first episode as host of E! Investigates premieres on December 8th, 2010 at 10:00 PM only on E!.

Kayla Havins shot herself with a hunting rifle. Darielys Tejera cut herself. Max Nolan washed down countless pills with vodka. These are just some of the tragic cases of suicide and suicide attempts that Laura Ling examines in E! Investigates: Teen Suicide. Ling's investigation takes her to schools where she speaks with teens about depression and to support groups for parents whose children have killed themselves. Sadly, Ling discovers that the recent rise in teen suicide making headlines is merely the tip of the iceberg. In many cases children show no outward signs of trouble, while others provide clues that are difficult to separate from everyday teen angst. Kathy Silverman, mother of Matt Silverman who passed away in 2006, tells E!, "It's very difficult to distinguish what is normal teenaged behavior and something that may become abnormal."

Frightening facts revealed in this episode of E! Investigates include:

* Every 40 seconds in the United States a teenage attempts suicide.

* Every two hours, suicide claims a teenager's life.

* For every young person who dies by suicide, up to two hundred attempt.

* 80% of suicidal people will tell someone in some way that they are going to do it.

* Only 30% of teens who are depressed are getting help.

With the help of experts including clinical psychologist Dr. Ramani Durvasula, Los Angeles Unified School District psychologist Richard Lieberman, and psychiatric nurse Cathy Strunk, along with the cooperation of young men and women who survived their suicide attempts and the family members suicide has left behind, E! Investigates provides an in-depth, far-reaching examination of this national crisis. Be sure to tune-in to E! Investigates: Teen Suicide on December 8th at 10:00 PM only on E!.
