Yesterday was 'World Suicide Prevention Day', on this day people worldwide think about people who have died by suicide or who survived an attempt. Suicide is one of the most common causes of death worldwide.
Yet little is known in the Netherlands about suicides and suicide attempts among migrants and refugees. That is why the editors of Argos and Small Stream Media are researching suicides and suicide attempts among unaccompanied migrants, refugee children and young people as part of the Lost in Europe project. We do this in both the Netherlands and Germany. We speak with mentors, pediatricians, psychologists, social workers, children and young people to get a better picture of this problem. The first article in our series will be posted soon.
