How Do You Talk to Kids About Suicide? From the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention

We are pleased to debut a series of 12 short, informative videos on suicide prevention, which feature AFSP-funded researchers who participated in the prestigious International Summit on Suicide Research held in New York this past October. Co-sponsored by AFSP and the International Academy of Suicide Research, this biennial conference is attended by suicide researchers from around the world.

The videos highlight topics including: Asking about Suicide; Safety Planning; Suicide in Older Adults; Suicide: From Research to Treatment; Teens, Drinking & Suicide - What Every Parent Should Know; Using Technology to Fight Suicide; Why We Need to Fund Suicide Prevention Research; and more, will be rolling out three per week for the next month, starting today. You can click right here to watch the first, which takes a look at how to talk to a child when you see warning signs for suicide.

Please look out for the rest of the videos throughout the month of April on, and AFSP Facebook and Twitter accounts!
