Record numbers call Childline over suicidal thoughts

Record numbers call Childline over suicidal thoughts Childline received an average of one call every 30 minutes from UK children with suicidal thoughts last year, the NSPCC has said.

Youngsters plagued by suicidal thoughts contacted Childline 19,481 times - more than double the number five years ago.

The charity said it referred many callers to the emergency services, adding a lack of support was leading children to reach crisis point.

The government insists it is investing in children's mental health services. BBC News
