Youth Caseworker in Phoenix House Kate Lee says when you think your children are someone who might be suicidal, you should tell them you are always ready to listen to them.
The mental health issue is one of the biggest problems derived from COVID19 pandemic.
It is not just adults that have been affected by unprecedented social changes.
Our children also had to face the unexpected virus outbreak, unexperienced isolation and lockdown and changes in parents’ emotional and financial condition.
