This bulletin is an overview of research that explores stress and suicide and its impact on the lives of American youth. Chapter 1 examines student-environment interaction as a means of identifying factors that contribute to students' feelings of distress or perceived inability to cope with their internal or external world. Chapter 2 presents research findings and examples of what schools can do to help students cope with their world. Chapter 3 describes some current programs and offers an appraisal of what some schools are doing. The final chapter recommends steps schools can take to develop programs that alleviate distress and reduce the likelihood of student suicide attempts. Appended are 14 resource agencies; 19 reference; and a list of 11 interviewed professionals. (SI)
