This information sheet provides a list of common risk factors that cause young people to commit or attempt to commit suicide and presents factors that can make suicide less likely. A supportive person in the young person's life, whether parent, teacher, close friend or youth worker, can help to resolve problems in a positive way. Supportive families are particularly important for young people. The resource offers suggestions for parents in preventing youth suicide.
