Two groups of students wrote how they would respond & how concerned they would be to 2 vignettes of troubled peers. In the posttest, the group with suicidal response classes had more “tell adult” reponses. Yet, there were no group differences in the pretest. All students were more concerned about the vignette which the student said they thought about suicide versus wrote about suicide. Females were more concerned than males. Study shows efficacy of the classes & simulations for assessing impact.
