The efficacy of the Youth-Nominated Support Team-Version 1, a psychosocial social network intervention, was studied with 289 suicidal adolescent inpatients. There were no main effects for this intervention on suicide ideation or attempts, internalizing symptoms, or related functional impairment. Relative to other girls, however, those who received the intervention reported greater decreases in self-reported suicide ideation & significantly greater decreases in mood-related functional impairment reported by their parents.
