Due to the high number of referrals for teen suicide to Hinton Mental Health Services Clinic, a public education program using teens & parents was developed. In preparation for program delivery, 400 grade 8-12 students were surveyed. The survey showed how many teens had contemplated suicide or knew of someone who did, how many had completed suicide, which of the common suicide myths were believed, & the places teens knew they could go for help.
