Let them know that suicide is not a solution to problems and there are always other choices

Talk with your child about coping with sadness and other difficult feelings and help them identify things they can do when they feel like that, such as talking with someone, or using art, music, writing or physical activity to express their feelings. Children may need reassurance that you would not choose suicide no matter how sad or upset you are, and that you will seek help if you or anyone in the family ever feels depressed or hopeless.
