185 high school principals completed a survey designed to evaluate the acceptability of suicide prevention programs. The results indicated that the curriculum-based & staff in-service programs were significantly more acceptable to principals than was the schoolwide student screeening program. No significant differences were found between the acceptability of curriculum-based & inservice programs. Limitations of the study & implications for practice & research are discussed. (36 refs.)
