Fighting teen suicide with yoga
Colorado (CNN NEWSOURCE) —
A Colorado mom is trying to fight teen suicide with a proactive approach.
These kids might be young, but they already lead very stressful lives.
Kimberly Wilson is a mom and a yoga instructor. She says when she saw the increase in teen suicide, she had to do something to promote mental health at a young age.
"When that happened, of course, as a parent, I'm thinking what can I do to help this problem?" yoga instructor Kimberly Wilson said. "And I think we're all searching for answers. I don't believe that yoga is the answer to this, but I do think it is a tool that we can use."
The kids do typical yoga poses, but they also journal and talk about what's going on in their lives.
