Does suicide really impact children under 10 through to adolescence? Yes!

In this session we will highlight myths and facts around children and suicide, potential warning signs, invitations to talk about suicide with children, and ways to move forward when suicide is a risk.

It is incredibly important to become aware of the potential of suicide with our children and youth so we can learn to build resilience, identify warning signs, and intervene when necessary.
