In a nutshell: Suicide among school-age children has significant effects on the student population.
Evidence-based suicide postvention guidelines are available to help guide schools
following a student suicide.
Child psychiatrists and mental health clinicians can play a variety of roles in the postvention process and can aid schools in a variety of ways through a well-thought-out response (ie, understanding grief reactions based on developmental levels, creating a crisis response team, advising schools on how to speak with the media).
Providing suicide postvention following a student suicide is also a part of suicide prevention programming in schools.
