Alarmingly suicide is the third leading cause of death among American youths age 10-24. Moreover, there are an estimated 100 to 200 suicide attempts for every completed youth suicide. Learn about suicidal youngsters and the role that schools have in keeping them safe. Read actual notes from a youngster who lived for seven years with clinical depression, and ultimately died by his own hand. This compelling issue also features barriers that impede treatment of suicidal youths, barriers that are staggering, formidable and can have dire and deadly consequences. Also featured is a special report on a second wave of death rippling through the hurricane-ravaged Gulf Coast as suicide deaths begin to climb. A gripping interview with researcher DeQuincy Lezine who survived multiple suicide attempts and talks candidly about the lure and seduction of suicide. And special messages from Charles G. Curie, administrator of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, reflecting on new and troubling data about the prevalence of suicidal thoughts and plans among youngsters. Read this and much more in the current issue of Advancing Suicide Prevention.
