NICCY commissioned the research 'Still Vulnerable -The Impact of Early Childhood Experiences on Adolescent Suicide and Accidental Death'. You can view both the main and the young person's reports below:
- Adult report written by Queen's University Belfast and NSPCC
- Young person's report written by Queen's University Belfast and NSPCC
In reading this report if you are worried about yourself or a friend then please talk to someone.
Young people who want to harm themselves need someone who will talk with them privately in an open and honest way, who will listen to them and help them find the help they need. If you feel you can’t speak to an adult you trust like a parent or teacher, then please contact ChildLine or Lifeline. They both offer confidential advice and support to young people, are open 24 hours a day and it won’t cost you anything to contact them.
- You can contact ChildLine by calling, emailing or chatting online - www.childline.org.uk
- You can also contact Lifeline by textphone on 18001 0808 808 8000 - www.lifelinehelpline.info
NICCY have also issued guidance around the reporting of the reports which you can view here.
