Long-Term Consequences of a Suicide at School
Leonhardi M~~Parravano E
The authors discuss the events that happened after the suicide of a 15-year-old male at his school. A trained crisis team immediately began postvention work. The school appeared to have returned to normalcy but further interventions were needed. One month later, a weekly support group was held for those students most affected by the suicide. A session was also held for parents. In the next school year more group sessions were held to help students cope with the anniversary of the suicide.
