Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is a 'must read' for anyone who works in school settings. The author presents a comprehensive and realistic perspective on youth suicidal behavior in the 21st century. Given the high prevalence of suicidal behavior among school-age children, this book offers mental health and school professionals a critical roadmap for prevention strategies to reduce this epidemic. Important postvention strategies are also provided to help a school community cope with a completed suicide."—Alec L. Miller, PsyD, Chief, Child and Adolescent Psychology, Montefiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein College of Medicine 
 
"Miller empowers school-based mental health professionals with knowledge and best practices to utilize when intervening with potentially suicidal students. He also provides critical tools for advocating for evidence-based suicide prevention policies and procedures to be put into place in a district. The book details the essential components of prevention, intervention, and postvention, and integrates public health, developmental, and cultural perspectives. This text is destined to stay on the desk of the school-based practitioner, not in the bookcase!"—Richard Lieberman, MA, school psychologist, Youth Suicide Prevention Program, Los Angeles (California) Unified School District
 
"An excellent, comprehensive resource. Miller clearly knows the field of youth suicidology and presents the information in easy-to-understand language that is supported by research. This book is essential for school personnel working with at-risk youth and for those designing and implementing suicide prevention programs."—James J. Mazza, PhD, Director, School Psychology Program, University of Washington
 
"This state-of-the-art book is readable and highly informative. It is filled with all the latest research and tools on youth suicide prevention, assessment, and intervention. Miller sheds light on an often misunderstood and rarely discussed topic, providing a practical resource that is truly needed. The information in this book can help save young lives."—Philip J. Lazarus, PhD, Director, School Psychology Program, Florida International University
 
"This exceptionally well-written book is remarkable for its comprehensiveness, scholarship, and clinical usefulness. It is a 'must-have' resource for school-based practitioners. I strongly recommend this book as a text for undergraduate and graduate courses related to school mental health, public health, prevention, and crisis intervention."—Thomas J. Power, PhD, Professor of School Psychology in Pediatrics, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine
