Safeguard Children's Mental Health - Prevent Youth Suicide
Children at puberty experience drastic changes in physical and mental growth, and may feel distressed, helpless and hopeless when they encounter challenges and adversities during this transition. Some may even have suicidal thoughts. As key gatekeepers, parents should seek professional support from school and the community once they become aware of their children’s display of suicidal warning signs. Parents should not take such signs lightly or keep these to themselves. This fact sheet aims to increase parents’ understanding of youth suicide through an introduction to risk factors, protective factors, suicidal warning signs and support measures.
Let us work together to safeguard children’s mental health and prevent youth suicide．
