Teen Suicide guest experts
Dear Scared Mum,
Did your son go for therapy and get help after his attempted suicide? It's difficult to be able to really advise you without knowing certain information, but if he got the help he needed and is happy, then just because he is no longer in therapy doesn't mean he is at risk. I would advise you to call SADAG on 011 262 6396 and talk to one of our counsellors so we can get more information and guide you more comprehensively. An attempted suicide is always scary and we worry about our loved ones, but unless he is showing signs that are concerning, he's ok.
