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.
