A Look At Teen Suicide is an overview of teen suicide data, trends, causes, risks, populations, methods and outcomes. The course works to increase students' comfort levels with the topic and get them thinking about who is at risk and why, how to identify potential suicidality, and what to do if you find out a youth is suicidal. We talk about cultural, media, medical and mental health, religious, and familial influences affecting the idea of suicide. Through the use of videos and guest speakers, we will hear first hand accounts of people who have been suicidal and have the opportunity to dialogue with them about their experiences. This candidly honest class is geared for people who intend to work in education, social services or any other venue where teens might be accessing services.
