Product Information:

Name: Cómo hablar con un hijo de 4 a 8 años acerca de un intento de suicidio en la familia
Description: Our Spanish version of this information sheet is intended to serve as a guide for adults to use when talking with a 4-8, 9-13 or 14-18 year-old child about a suicide attempt in the family. It is not intended to replace the advice of a mental health professional. In fact, it may be best to use this along with professional support if you or your child is struggling with how to talk about this difficult topic. It is important to consider the child’s level of development and ability to understand events when deciding how to talk with them about this issue.
