Stronger Suicide Prevention Response For Youth & Children Needed

The number of suicide cases involving teenagers has been rising, and the pandemic is adding more pressure on the mental health of young people. Even more worryingly, children as young as 6 have also shown an awareness of taking one’s life, in part due to the depiction of suicide in popular media. What are the warning signs we can look out for and how do we strengthen measures to help emotionally distressed children and youth? We discuss this with consultant psychologist Dr. Dhanya Pillai.
