The intent of this study was to identify issues, other than content issues that are deemed critical to the teaching of suicide awareness presentations. Results show that effective awareness presenter training programs should: allow presenters to examine their attitudes about death and suicide; inform presenters of the personal qualities that contribute to an effective presentation; provide a variety of teaching techniques, & prepare them to deal with any kind of crisis situation that may occur.
