Clustering of suicides in children and adolescents

Suicide is one of the major causes of death in young people, in whom suicide can occur in clusters. In this Review, we have investigated definitions and epidemiology of such clusters, the factors associated with them, mechanisms by which they occur, and means of intervening and preventing them. Clustering of suicidal behaviour is more common in young people (<25 years) than adults. Suicide clusters can occur as a greater number of episodes than expected at a specific location, including in institutions (eg, schools, universities, psychiatric units, and youth offender units).

A Family-Centered Approach to Working with Refugee Children and Adolescents

Families provide children with crucial surroundings of social support, acknowledgment, and hope, creating a protective shield.

It is therefore important to find ways to preserve and strengthen family support in times of difficulties.
