In Conversation with Helen Burns of Papyrus – Suicide Prevention

To mark Suicide Prevention Day 2020, Alicia speaks to Helen Burns, Suicide Prevention Adviser for Papyrus, prevention of young suicide.

Mum of three, Helen, explains the language we should be using when talking to young people about suicide, the signs which might help us spot someone who is contemplating suicide, what we might say to someone who has expressed suicidal thoughts and what we can do as adults to prevent young people from taking their own lives.
