Do you know if your child has entertained thoughts of suicide?

As parents, we can be a safe space for our children to learn through mistakes, and express their emotions when life gets overwhelming.

But what if they begin to withdraw and keep to themselves instead? What other tools do we have to restore the connection and ensure their wellbeing?

Learn how to be a pillar of strength in your child's life in times of need.

Led by family life trainers and parents of a teenager, Gary and Joanna Koh have had their share of personal encounters with suicide.

Through their respective “previous lives” as the head of a school's counselling department for students aged 13-18 and a psychiatric case manager, they share valuable professional and, more importantly, candid parenting lessons for preventing suicide early.

About Our Trainers, Gary and Joanna Koh

Here are what some participants said

"I will be more sensitive to what is happening within my child and understand his actual needs."

"I am more confident in making fruitful conversation with my boys."

"We get along very well with our children. Yet I realised I must engage my children on a deeper level so that they know we accept them and keep communication lines open. Then we can better support them."

"I've learnt to engage in casual talk before critical talk, and work on knowing how my children like to be loved."
