Talking to Kids About a Family Suicide Attempt
An excellent, well-researched and professionally produced video takes on a difficult task: how to talk to kids and teens about a suicide attempt made by a family member or friend.
With four scenarios, this video offers advice and examples, with acted-out dialogues. It talks about how to handle discussions differently with kids in three age groups: preschoolers, school-aged children, and teenagers.
The web site also offers additional resources and information, such as places to turn in America for more support, including 24/7 helplines. It also offers videos and information broken down by age group instead of the 19 minute full-length production.
A unique and valuable resource, this video can help reassure and educate children and youth, to keep your family functioning.
