I believe that peer pressure is the main reason for the suicide among teenagers.

I will accept your argument as there are multiple factors that are in play when a person is either thinking of committing suicide or if they had already committed suicide.

Now I did not misread your opening statement as you said that peer pressure is the main reason for the suicide rate among teenagers. Peer pressure isn't one of the more cited causes but a severe rise in hopeless is the main cause of suicide among teenagers.

In this debate, I will prove that the main cause of suicide among teens is an increased level of hopelessness in a teen that ultimately drives them over the edge and results in them taking their own life.

Good luck to my opponent and I look forward to this wonderful debate.
