Video: Five Things Kids Bereaved by Suicide Want Adults to Know
Presenters: Andy McNiel , Carla Stumpf Patton
Knowing what to tell children and how to best support them after a suicide loss is a struggle for many parents, caregivers, and professionals. As a result, children are often provided limited information, while the adults in their lives attempt to provide encouragement and shield them from the difficult realities associated with a suicide death.
This presentation will explore five things kids bereaved by suicide say they need from the adults in their lives to better support them. We also will discuss talking to kids about suicide and how child and teen grief after a suicide loss differs from other types of losses.
