Suicide by children younger than 11 is a sad and tragic occurrence. Indeed, suicidal ideation and behavior has been documented in children as young as ages 3 to 7. The current overview provides a discussion of the frequency of suicide in children and associated predisposing conditions, such as depression and abuse. In response to these tragic events, nursing interventions are also proposed. [Journal of Psychosocial Nursing and Mental Health Services, 54(10), 27-30.].
