Talking to children about suicide

Concerns have been highlighted to North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Board about suicide either via personal experiences or as a result of TV programmes.

We appreciate that some people find it difficult to discuss suicide however it is important to support children who have suicidal thoughts or ideation. We would like to use this opportunity to identify and engage young people that are at risk, and have open and honest conversations to help identify the right support for individuals.
