This week is National Suicide Prevention Week, a time in which there is a particular focus on teen suicides. When dealing with this issue, what we often don’t get to hear are the voices of young people actually speaking for themselves about their experiences.
With that in mind these five videos spread over the coming pages, all recorded in the past year, are made by teenagers who talk about dealing with suicide and suicidal thoughts and also their joy and relief at working through their problems with the help and support of loved ones and experienced adults.
