Do adolescents need help in the perception of death?

Death is an inevitable fact of life which has to be accepted by both children and adults. A study conducted by the authors has revealed a discrepancy between adults' opinion on how adolescents perceive death and their actual attitudes. It turns out that adults underestimate the impact of death on the younger generation. A special system of instruction in the attitude to death is required in order to alleviate fear and anxiety associated with death and prevent suicide attempts in adolescence.
