Lessons in Suicide Prevention from the Golden Gate Bridge: Means Restriction, Public Health, and the School Psychologist
Miller, David N.
Contemporary School Psychology, v17 n1 p71-79 Jan 2013
Youth suicide is a global public health problem and some lessons for more effectively preventing it can be found in a perhaps unlikely source: the Golden Gate Bridge. Issues discussed include means restriction and method substitution, the stigma associated with suicide and the consequences of it, myths and misconceptions regarding suicide, and taking a public health approach to suicide prevention. The implications of these issues for school-based suicide prevention and school psychologists are provided.
