Permalink Number of UK kids considering suicide rising: Helpline

The number of British children thinking or talking about taking their own lives is dramatically increasing, a helpline says. The ChildLine counseling service said on Friday that it has received over 34,000 calls in 2013-14 from under-18s who had suicidal thoughts, representing an increase of 116 percent when compared to figures recorded in 2010-11. Almost 6,000 of the children seeking consultation admitted to attempting suicide previously, showing a 43-percent rise from the year before, added the helpline run by the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) charity. It also noted that 15-year-olds were counseled more than any other age group this year.
