The Need for a School Suicide Prevention Policy.
Coy, Doris Rhea
NASSP Bulletin, v79 n570 p1-9 Apr 1995
Suicide is the second major cause of death for adolescents, after accidents. Administrators should adopt cautious and comprehensive policies, risk management, and prevention programs. Educators should recognize warning signs: suicide threats, recent losses, traumatic events, sudden changes in appearance, heavy drug or alcohol use, and preoccupation with final arrangements or giving away prized possessions.
