Walk With Us is a free, beautifully designed toolkit by Chilypep (Children and Young People’s Empowerment Project) co-produced with children and young people who have been bereaved by suicide. The toolkit was funded by NHS South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw through transformational funding for suicide prevention from NHS England. Chilypep were commissioned to identify what support children, young people and families would like to see following a bereavement by suicide, and work with them to develop a toolkit for professionals to use with them focusing on how best to offer this support.
The information in this toolkit is useful for everyone, including professionals and children, young people and families.
The toolkit includes useful information such as:
- Misconceptions around suicide
- Dealing with the deceased’s Social Media
- Practical help, links and templates
- Self-care and communication tips
- Managing grief and emotions
