Adolescent Suicide: Postvention in a school.

This paper examines the effect of completed suicide by a student on other high school students. The case history of a 16-year-old female student who jumped from an eight-storey car park roof is discussed. The death was followed by an increase in suicide attempts. The postvention strategy in the school is discussed and offered as an example of what may need to be done in the aftermath of the suicide of an adolescent.

The effect on adolescents of the completed suicide of another student.

This paper demonstrates that students in a school from where two suicides had occurred were more likely to know about the suicides, but also more likely to be depressed and suicidal compared with students from two comparison schools of similar social background.
