The Children's Ombudsman (Barnombudsmannen, BO) Fredrik Malmberg has put forward a lists of suggestions to avoid unaccompanied children and adolescent asylum seekers from committing suicide after receiving expulsion orders to leave the country.

After a crisis meeting with the Migration Agency and National Board of Health and Welfare, Fredrik Malmberg's action plan includes suicide prevention work with children and adolescents, training staff working with unaccompanied minors and asking the government to give more money to Save the Children's support line for new arrivals.

It follows a warning from a network of people working with unaccompanied children who said that they were discussing suicide in closed groups on social media.
