It is every parent’s greatest fear to think that their child might be contemplating suicide. For most people it is difficult to understand and talk about why someone may be thinking about taking this course of action. Sadly, some young people reach a point where they feel this is their only escape and it is often seen as a way out rather than ending one’s life.

Suicidal thoughts affect both boys and girls and can occur in a variety of ways for a variety of reasons.

If you have concerns that a young person you care about is considering suicide take their considerations seriously. Seek medical advice immediately.

Also, get professional advice on how to make your home safer for the young person.
