Abstract

Authors' conclusion: this study found that exposure to suicide predicts suicide ideation and attempts. These results support school-wide interventions over current targeted interventions, particularly over strategies that target interventions toward children closest to the decedent.

Reviewers' commentary: this study provides enough evidence that, among young people, exposure to suicide is a risk factor for suicidal behaviours in the future. Everyone who is exposed should be included in suicide prevention programs.
