Abstract

This report is designed to assist Texas educators to know the incidence of youth suicide and to recognize schools have the ability to increase suicide awareness, increase protective factors, build resiliency in students and very importantly to intervene and get help for a suicidal student by employing a system-wide approach that includes all stakeholders. It is intended to clarify the role of the schools and increase not only awareness of youth suicide but to help schools increase their collaborative efforts as part of the Zero Suicide Model.
