Not My Kid: What Every Parent Should Know

Created by the Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide, Not My Kid: What Every Parent Should Know is an online learning experience that features videos of parents from culturally diverse backgrounds asking mental health professionals a variety of common questions about youth suicide. You may be interested in receiving information to help your child, a family member or a friend of your child, and Not My Kid provides this information from a variety of mental health professionals.

Not My Kid contains a variety of videos that assists parents, guardians and trusted adults in knowing the warning signs of youth suicide, explains how to have important conversations and provides valuable resources to help keep their children safe.
