Examined a 3-year youth suicide prevention school program established by a California legislative mandate in 1983. Findings for the 1st 2 years of the program indicate significant gains in understanding of youth suicide prevention techniques for those high school students who completed a 4-hour training course. School staff & parents completing 90-min. youth suicide awareness seminars indicated that they most appreciated receiving practical advice & resources they could use.
