The author analysed 82 responses resulting from a questionnaire sent to U.S. high school & college students asking them to report anonymously their suggestions for effective suicide prevention techniques. She concluded with many good suggestions, including: (1) Stop considering kids as innocents (2) Think of them as veterans of grief & loss who have not yet learned to cope (3) See that they find adults who can teach them about coping & who will give them permission to express their sorrow.
