Abstract

Suicide is the eighth leading cause of death for Kansans. This study consists of two parts. Results will be presented showing a significant increase in suicide for individuals 24 years and younger, followed by results from a statewide survey evaluating school psychologists' involvement in suicide support within the schools. We will discuss how these results can be used to encourage the increased presence of school psychologists in school suicide prevention and what best practices in suicide risk assessments are in the schools.
