Kids Helpline

Introducing our Kids Helpline, a confidential and anonymous chat service with a trained volunteer and educational website/app resource for kids and teens. 

Supporting Children & Young People Bereaving Suicide

Supporting children and young people bereaving suicide is never easy. It’s important that parents, guardians and teachers feel prepared, and know where to find help.
We’ve put together a helpful resource booklet to highlight how young people might feel and respond and, most importantly, how to best support them.

Supporting those with Neurodiversity Bereaving Suicide

The reaction to grief is a long process, for everyone. While support should always be tailored to meet the needs of an individual, there are extra considerations to make when supporting those with neurodiversity through bereavement by suicide. We’ve put together another helpful resource booklet to help you tailor your support to meet the needs of those with neurodiversity.

Addressing Suicidal Thoughts and Feelings

Thoughts and feelings of suicide may be a concern for you or your loved ones. We’ve put together a brief guide on what suicidal ideation is, how you can help others, and where you can find help for yourself.
