Slough Safeguarding Children Partnership

Guidance for practitioners to support adults, children or young people at risk of suicide ideation

We are aware of the rise in mental health concerns for children and young people during the pandemic.  Many different practitioners may come into contact with children or young people who are considering or threatening to take their own life which is a very difficult situation for a practitioner who does not normally deal with severe mental health concerns.


Slough Safeguarding Partnership has worked with Public Health Colleagues and Mental Health Practitioners to develop guidance to support practitioners working with children and young people as well as adults who are at risk of suicide ideation. Click below to access the guidance.
