Description

The purpose of this research synthesis is to strengthen the suicide prevention programs for adolescents in a school setting, and to raise public awareness of the significance of one’s mental well-being. This study aims to investigate the facts and prevention methods for adolescent suicide. To examine the research question, three major domains were demonstrated: population of suicide attempters and completers, major reasons for adolescents to commit suicide, and effective prevention methods. This research synthesis adopts a bottom-up research approach, searching for relevant studies from general to specific. It has been found that the adolescent’s suicide can be prevented through methods that include mindfulness classes, parent-teacher conferences, enhanced classroom management, and screening process.
