Abstract/Description

Nationally, suicide is the third leading cause of death in adolescents and the tenth leading cause of death in California in adolescents (CA Department of Mental Health, 2007). Many people are working for the prevention of teen suicide and implementing programs into schools throughout the United States. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, SAMHSA, provides suicide prevention information and resources to health professionals and the general public. SAMHSA has developed a model that illustrates what is needed in an effective program for adolescents, suicide assessment, and screening (SAMHSA, 2014).

Based on this knowledge I am going to be conducting research to determine the state of in-school suicide prevention interventions in Marin County and how the existing programs align with the SAMHSA framework. I will then analyze the data and determine how Marin County schools can better their programs to ensure full effectiveness.
