Trauma-based & Family Psychotherapy For Angry, Anxious, Depressed, and Frustrated Families

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 VIRUS UPDATE1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

States across the nation are passing laws, reducing restrictions, and enacting new regulations to help support the transition from stay-at-home orders to the normal flow of life again.

To keep everyone at Anchored Child & Family Counseling safe, I will only be opening the office for in-person sessions 1 day of the week. The other days of the week will consist of teletherapy sessions until the mask wearing restrictions are reduced or eliminated and corona virus cases have gone down.

My office assistant and I will be monitoring insurance policies for any changes to corona-related cost share, copayment, and coinsurance policies. I will be checking and rechecking insurance policies to ensure you will be covered for teletherapy. At this time, all major insurance companies (UPMC, Highmark, Aetna, Optum/United, and Cigna) are continuing to provide coverage for teletherapy into September 2020.

Please check www.anchoredinknowledge.com (the practice website) for updates and my business facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/anchoredchild.

Please continue to stay safe!
Thank you

Tamara
