Parents' Perspectives on Young Suicide
Stanley, Nicky
Children & Society, v19 n4 p304-315 Sep 2005
Strategies for the prevention of adolescent suicide are frequently designed to identify those young people who represent a high risk in order that services and support can be effectively targeted. This study explored the experiences of parents who had lost a child through suicide. The findings suggest that the range of behaviours perceived by parents was too broad and diverse to allow for a checklist approach to the identification of risk. The parents' responses did produce some valuable reflections on their experiences of professional support as well as some key messages on parenting which could be disseminated to all parents of adolescents.
