Increase in number of suicidal children calling Childline

The number of children seeking counselling because they are considering suicide has more than doubled in five years, according to the NSPCC's Childline.

Turbulent home lives, pressure at school and mental health conditions were all major triggers for suicidal thoughts, with children as young as 10 contacting the charity for help.
