It’s an eye-opening statistic: suicide is the third leading cause of death for young people between 15 and 24.
To help recognize the warning signs and prevent youth suicide, USF’s Department of Child and Family Studies recently presented a workshop for school administrators and other mental health care providers. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 looks at the community approach these researchers recommend.
