Resources for Parents Following a Suicide Attempt

Resources for Parents Following a Suicide Attempt is a resource guide that provides an overview of what parents can expect during a child’s recovery, including safety considerations, ways to limit access to lethal means, warning signs of suicide, and risk factors. The guide compiles information from vetted sources, such as the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, the CDC, SAMHSA, and the National Shooting Sports Foundation. It is intended to provide relevant information, tools, and local resources in one document to assist parents in transitioning their loved ones home from inpatient treatment. This resource guide is not exhaustive and should be used in addition to consultation with a loved one’s treatment team. 

For information about the Youth Suicide Prevention Plan or to request materials, community presentations, or trainings, contact Leah Bulka, Youth Suicide Prevention Coordinator, at lbulka@howardcountymd.gov.
