Childhood Suicide: What It Is and How To Help (Webinar)

Childhood Suicide

Childhood suicide can be one of the most heartbreaking things to discuss. Why? Because we often view children as happy, content, and easygoing. We hardly ever think of children as suffering from mental illness or thinking about suicide.

Sadly, some children are struggling just as much as teens and adults.

This article will discuss the “creative” and “sneaky” ways kids may be considering suicide. 

Childhood suicide is a topic we rarely discuss and a topic that frightens many of us. I had the opportunity to discuss this topic with SimpleK12.com (a website for educators and parents). I am making the webinar available to you at no charge. The webinar provides extensive information on the many things children consider when contemplating suicide. The webinar also discusses childhood trauma and its connection to childhood suicide.

Childhood signs of suicide

Children experience suicidal thoughts in a different way than teens do. Children may have thoughts that don’t make sense to others or seem limited. Their thoughts may be difficult to follow through on and may lack depth and forethought. It is important to understand how they think and some of the ways they may attempt suicide.

I encourage you to share this webinar, post your questions or comments below, and broach the topic with other parents who may have a child in need.

CORONA VIRUS1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

Trying to understand all of the chaos associated with the #coronavirus can feel very overwhelming.

I want to let ALL of my clients/patients who come to Anchored Child & Family Counseling or who see me for consultations know that I am taking the necessary steps to ensure that all of the families and individuals who come to the office are safe and healthy.

Please know that, in the event Anchored Child & Family Counseling is asked to alter its hours or close for the safety of all clients/patients, I will be offering tele-health (online, computer, or phone) services. Although I do not anticipate this happening any time soon, this is important to be prepared for.

I also want to assure you that if I receive any information regarding the corona virus that involves your insurance and/or your care I will let you know as soon as possible.

Although many of the new reports may appear to be or feel exaggerated, as you know keeping our eyes open and making smart decisions is essential.

Please let me know if you have questions!
Tamara
