This article describes an intervention occurring after the suicide of an elementary school teacher. The intervention included a meeting with faculty, classroom discussions with the students most directly affected, and the availability of the school psychologist for individual meetings. The authors argue that such a broad, multifaceted response contributes to the healing process and serves to minimize mental health difficulties.
