New figures show bereaved children less likely to share their worries

One in 29 school age children in the UK—almost one in every classroom—have been bereaved of a parent or sibling.  New data published today by the Childhood Bereavement Network found that children whose mum or dad had died were less likely to talk to someone at home about their worries (60% compared to 72% of those not bereaved) or to share their concerns with a friend (28% compared to 40%).

#ITSOKAYTOTALK this World Suicide Prevention Day

Cruse Bereavement Care, as a member of the National Suicide Prevention Alliance (NSPA), is teaming up with Andy’s Man Clubs to encourage men to reach out for help and support when life feels overwhelming.

In the run-up to World Suicide Prevention Day, (Sept 10), Cruse is one of 70 organisations in England who are joining together in a big national unified push to reduce deaths by suicide, by telling men that ‘it’s okay to talk’.

The initiative comes after an online campaign of the same name reached millions of people globally last month.
