Description

Suicide: It's Time We Talked

Brought To You By Parenting Guides Ltd

Youth suicide is a difficult subject confronting all communities but this play looks at cyberbullying and contagion confronting our teenagers. It is not all "doom and gloom & has a happy ending".

The play:

  • Targets parents, carers, educators and health professionals working with teenagers: our collaborators want parents, in particular, to take "ownership through education". As well as targeting teenagers themselves.

  • Deliver a performance in a safe and educational environment

  • Deliver in an art form that has "light and shade"
