Suicidal children's calls rise23rd March 2009
The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children has confirmed that the amount of suicidal children calling its telephone helpline has increased threefold since 2004.
ChildLine head Sue Minto said: "It is heartbreaking to listen to children talk of wanting to consider suicide. For a suicidal child, ChildLine can literally be a lifeline. For some children, saying they want to take their own lives is a cry for help, while others see it as the only way to escape their problems."
