The Hidden Danger

With suicide being the leading cause of death for people under 35 in the UK (ONS), educators are under increased pressure to stop the deadly toll. Far too often, though, safeguarding measures fall short in addressing suicide's covert ally - online content relating to self-harm and suicide.

Research show that over 20% of young people who lost their life to suicide had suicide-related online searches (University of Manchester). While blocking access to harmful content is widely adopted as a safeguarding measure, it is just a fraction of the solution when it comes to suicide prevention. What is crucial is signposting students towards the support they desperately need during their moments of vulnerability.
