Counselors’ recognition of factors in lethality of suicide was studied using the same scale of factors as was used in Holmes & Howard’s study of other professional groups. 15 professors of counselor education, 12 post-secondary counselors, 47 secondary-level counselors & 20 elementary-level counselors completed an examination of signs of suicide. The data for each of these groups are presented & analyzed & show counselors’ recognition to be equal to those of social workers & ministers.
