Adolescents’ deaths by suicide are tragedies which touch the lives of large numbers of people. How do these deaths impact other students at the decedents’ schools, and how should schools best respond? The current study surveyed 9th through 12th grade students in a total of 12 schools in the U.S. where students had or had not been exposed to a schoolmate’s suicide (six schools per group). The general student population at the exposed schools was not found to be at increased risk of suicidal ideation or behavior. However, exposed students with concurrent negative life events and those who were friends, albeit not close friends, of the suicide decedents were at increased risk. These students also failed to report the same adaptive attitudes toward help-seeking that the general population of exposed students reported. Schools need to pay special attention to these students after a suicide has occurred on their premises. View this paper
