Thread. Serious Case Review National Repository, 27th August 2018.
A professional decided to do a search and analysis of serious case reviews, as one is ALWAYS completed when a child dies, commits suicide or is seriously injured via neglect, abuse etc.
There were 226 serious case reviews in the last 10 yrs tagged with 'suicide' but that includes murder/suicides, which a lot of them were - parents killing their kids & then committing suicide, causing the tag. Out of 226 cases, 163 were kids who committed suicide in past 10 yrs.
There were no suicides of trans children in UK in last 10 years in serious case reviews. The tag 'gender identity' returns no serious case reviews.
The tag 'gender' returns 7 serious case reviews, but in all cases except one it returns serious case reviews about girls being killed or abused based on 'gender based violence'.
The tag 'transgender' and 'trans' only returns 1 serious case review in the last 10 years - and it was because the Dad identified as female and the Mum identified as male and the three kids were psychologically impacted and then removed for neglect and trauma.
The data came from the Serious Case Review National Repository, 27th August 2018. (end)
Caveats. Although universities and peer reviewed journals use the SCR, it's possible not every case is logged, only FOI would answer this.
There is another report from Manchester university 2016 - their suicide stats showed 145 suicides registered for people aged 10-25.
They say that suicide rates get much higher at 18 and 19 years old, which skews the stats as we really need the U18 stats
ONS suicide categories are 10-14 years old (around 190 per year) and then 15-19 years old which jumps to 3315 suicides per year - majority of which are 18+ and over 70% are males
70% of suicides of 10-14 yo are also males.

This means that the suicide rate of trans kids - if true - would be majority born male.
Manchester uni list top 10 reasons for the 145 child suicides in 2016 in England :
Family pressure
Bullying at school
Suicide related internet searches and forums
School exams
Mental health issues and suicide ideation
Physical illness limiting life alcohol and illicit drug use*
*this was the largest category in 18+ but the most common reason for child suicide was child abuse, bullying and exams
From: Suicide by children and young people in England NCISH Manchester university 2016
Four children (3%) left notes or information that led coroners/professionals to believe suicide was completed due to realising they were gay. No suicides were recorded to do with gender or trans.
Key point really is most data age ranges are 10 - 25 and yet there is a massive leap in cases in age range 18+, self inflicted death below the age of 18 is a) incredibly rare, b) usually male and c) nothing to do with being trans. Lobby groups are inc adult data in their stats
