Intrusive thoughts about dying

Hi all.

A member has posted the following query on another discussion forum, and I thought I would repost it here. Have you any suggestions or ideas on how they can help the young person?

"I am looking for strategies to help a young autistic client deal with intrusive thoughts about dying. These thoughts seem to be more prevalent when he is at school (he often is not very open to using stress management strategies so it is challenging)."
