The phenomenon of bullying is a contributing factor to teens committing suicide. Teen suicide is one of the prominent causes leading to commitment of suicide amongst youth through cyber, family, workplace, school, body shaming, college bullying. This research paper explicitly highlights some of the recent suicidal attempts amongst the youth faced due to various bullying mediums. Furthermore, this paper focuses on some of the preventive measures, detection techniques through which this issue can be addressed to a considerable extent. An attempt has been also made to put light on legal awareness by which bullying attempts amongst youth can be taken care of. In addition, the statistical data in this paper show figures for specific states, and the alarming increase in suicidal incidents among youth in India is equally troubling.
