MMGuardian will alert parents of potentially harmful situations based on the content of their child’s monitored messages. This page provides recommended actions for the alert type indicated above.
No parent wants to think that their child could be suicidal, but teenage suicides are increasing, so it’s a subject that needs to be taken seriously. Ensure that you communicate very openly with your child about subjects like this so that your child will hopefully feel like they can come to you.
1. Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
The number is 800-273-8255, and they also have a chat function on their official website:
They will be able to provide you with the help and resources that you need.
2. Seek Therapy for Your Child
Some parents may be resistant to seeking professional help for their child because it makes them feel as if they’ve failed as a parent, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with doing so. They are professionally trained to be able to handle situations like this, and with something as serious as suicide, parents should take advantage of all resources that they can.
