In a research survey of young people between the ages of 10 and 17, researchers asked "how often have you wanted to kill yourself?" 1 in 23 kids reported feeling this way at least once. These thoughts doubled in kids that reported being bullied, attacked, physically threatened, or otherwise victimized by peers.

Like adults the anonymity is appealing, yet it can be very dangerous. The disconnect can be vast as this poem written by a teenage girl illustrates. She refers to the internet and her online self as her mask. She smiles, I cry.
She's brave, I’m shy.
She loves, I’m alone.
She’s amazing, I’m unknown.
She’s beautiful, I’m a mess.
She’s happy, I’m depressed.
She’s a fake, I am real.
My mask is perfect, she hides me.
