Paris Jackson "Physically Fine" after possible suicide attempt

Reaction to Paris Jackson's attempted suicide

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Paris Jackson is safe and physically ok after being rushed to an LA hospital, according to sources close to the family. 

The 15-year old daughter of the late Michael Jackson tried to hurt herself with a knife Wednesday in her Calabasas home, and is now getting the appropriate medical attention.

The night before, Paris had left some cryptic messages to her followers on Twitter--- including one tweet quoting the Beatles' song "Yesterday," and another saying "I wonder why tears are salty."

One local psychologist tells NewsChannel 3 these were signs missed, and that we can learn from her incident by paying more attention to our children, and learning to better communicate with them.

If you're concerned about a loved one or want to know how to best  speak to your child about suicide, here are some helpful videos:
