Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. understand how the formation of a secondary student suicide prevention club fits into a comprehensive role as outlined by the NASP Practice Model.
  2. understand how the curriculum of a secondary student suicide prevention club was created to best reflect current research.
  3. understand ways to monitor the impact of a secondary student suicide prevention club.

Description

This study will present the process of developing and implementing a research-based suicide prevention club at the secondary level and the outcomes and future directions for a large-scale follow up study. The primary aim of this project is to decrease suicide and suicide behaviors in youth as in many states both high school students reported having seriously considered attempting suicide and/or reported to have actually attempted suicide have increased in recent years (CDC, 2017).
