Support for parents of suicidal teenagers

What are the needs and expectations of parents who are dealing with a suicidal child? And what can parents do to help?

By means of qualitative in-depth interviews with parents who have recently dealt or are currently dealing with a suicidal child, we aim to develop an innovative tool to support parenting skills in case of a suicidal child (teenager or young adult, 10 - 24 years old).

Researcher: Alexandre Reynders

Alexandre Reynders will give a presentation at the 16th European Symposium on Suicide and Suicidal Behaviour, in Oviedo, Spain, titeled ‘Stigma, attitudes and help-seeking intentions for psychological problems in relation to regional suicide rates’.

This project was made possible thanks to the support of the Flemish Agency for Care & Health.
