Chapter 10: Adolescent Suicide

Lillian Range discusses adolescent suicide, another leading cause of adolescent death. Range offers a comprehensive view that encompasses prevention, intervention, and postvention. Prevention can offer particular challenges for two reasons. First, while we often think that suicide is an act sui generis, suicide can be the result of many different conditions. For example, it may be an act arising from depression. It could be a response to a crisis- a failing grade or a break-up in a romantic relationship, or even a psychotic episode, perhaps induced by drugs. Second, risk factors associated with adolescent suicide, such as isolation from peer support or lack of involvement in school or community activities, yield many false positives.
