This paper presents information about the current effects of suicide deaths on Nevada’s school
children. These effects include the behavioral health impact on children, youth and families
following the deaths of peers, family members or caregivers, school staff, or other suicides
within a student’s home and in their school community. The purpose of this paper is to inform
legislators and government agencies on the gravity of the current issue and engage continuing
support toward prevention, intervention, and postvention system improvements and initiatives,
including school, community, and state agency integration of services and sustainable funding
for school-based and community-based behavioral health services. Click on the Library link above and enjoy reading the article. Or click below..
