Help! My Child is Having Suicidal Thoughts

If you’ve been thinking, “Help! My child is having suicidal thoughts,” this Q&A video with Focus on the Family Counselor Christina Chismar is for you. Christina is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who tells parents to take it seriously when your child talks about depression or suicide.

Christina provides a clear and helpful way to figure out some steps you can take if you’re wondering how to react to your child’s words and behavior regarding depression and suicidal thoughts. She encourages use of the SLAP acrostic:

• Specific Plan
• Lethality
• Availability
• Proximity to People

Christina clearly explains each item in the SLAP acrostic and then gives specific steps parents may want to take based on answers to the questions parents can ask themselves about their son or daughter’s words and actions.
