Suicide in Youth
Carol Watkins, MD According to the Surgeon General, a youth commits suicide every two hours in our country. In 1997, more adolescents died from suicide than AIDS, cancer, heart disease, birth defects and lung disease. Suicide claims more adolescents than any disease or natural cause. Adolescents now commit suicide at a higher rate than the national average of all ages. The rate of adolescent suicide in adolescent males has tripled between 1960 and 1980. Suicide rates for adolescent females have increased between two to three fold. There have been striking increases in suicidal behaviors among African American males, Native American males and children under 14. Much of the increase can be accounted for by deaths due to guns.

Responding to Students Who May be At-Risk for Suicide- School Counselors School counselors have a legal duty to protect students if they foresee or should have foreseen that the student was potentially dangerous to himself or herself. It is impossible to predict suicide – school counselors are expected to exercise reasonable care (take precautions) to protect students from foreseeable harm. Be able to make evaluations of whether a student may be at-risk for suicide. Understand the myths of suicide warning signs , and how to respond

Guidance Counselors May Miss Suicide Warning Signs
A new study published in the American Journal of Health Behavior reports high school guidance counselors believe it is their job to spot teens at risk for suicide but only one-third believe they could recognize the warning signs. Assistant professor Keith King of the University of Cincinnati led the survey of 186 high school counselors. “Along with school psychologists, these are the school professionals who are the most trained in mental health issues,” says King. “If the school professionals feel they cannot identify a child at risk, what does that mean? It means kids in need are being missed.” The counselors had been working in the field an average of 11 years and had been at their present schools an average of eight-and-one-half years. They responded to 45 questions, including whether one of their students attempted suicide. 74 percent reported one or more students had attempted suicide. Two thirds (66 percent) said they had school crisis intervention teams to handle suicide attempts, while only one-third (34 percent) said suicide prevention was taught in their school curricula. “Unfortunately, many schools will not touch suicide prevention,” continued King. “They believe if they talk about it, then it will happen. However, the research does not back that belief and, in fact, is in total opposition to that.”

Significant Points
  • A master’s degree is often required to be licensed or certified as a counselor.
  • All but three States require some form of licensure or certification for practice outside of schools; all States require school counselors to hold a State school counseling certification.
Nature of the Work About this section Back to Top Counselors assist people with personal, family, educational, mental health, and career decisions and problems. Their duties depend on the individuals they serve and on the settings in which they work. Educational, vocational, and school counselors Elementary school counselors observe younger children during classroom and play activities and confer with their teachers and parents to evaluate the children’s strengths, problems, or special needs. They also help students develop good study habits. Elementary school counselors do less vocational and academic counseling than do secondary school counselors. School counselors at all levels help students understand and deal with social, behavioral, and personal problems. These counselors emphasize preventive and developmental counseling to provide students with the life skills needed to deal with problems before they occur and to enhance the student’s personal, social, and academic growth. Counselors provide special services, including alcohol and drug prevention programs and conflict resolution classes. Counselors also try to identify cases of domestic abuse and other family problems that can affect a student’s development. Counselors work with students individually, with small groups, or with entire classes. They consult and collaborate with parents, teachers, school administrators, school psychologists, medical professionals, and social workers in order to develop and implement strategies to help students be successful in the education system.

    By Bryan Robinson
    Sept. 9, 2003 Daniel was only 12 years old when he hanged himself in the closet of his bedroom on Jan. 2, 2002. By all accounts, he was troubled. Weighing only 63 pounds, he was bullied mercilessly at school. His small size, tendency to dress in shabby clothes, poor hygiene and strong body odor made him easy prey for ridicule by his classmates at Washington Middle School in Meriden, Conn. The bullying was so severe that Daniel feared going to school and was absent 44 days in the months before his death. And when he did attend school, officials said he purposely defecated and urinated on himself to get sent home. State prosecutors also believed Scruggs, 52, could have done more to help her son, and charged her with risk of injury to a minor in his suicide. If convicted, she could face up to 10 years in prison.

    thoughts of suicide should promise himself or herself not to take any action untildiscussing it with a minister, priest, school guidance counselor, physician
    What does the Bible say about suicide and depression? The Bible mentions several instances of suicide, but does not give any specific laws about it. However, there are several passages that indicate life is given by God and only God has the right to take it away. For example: "I came naked from my mother's womb," he said, "and I shall have nothing when I die. The Lord gave me everything I had, and they were his to take away. Blessed be the name of the Lord." (TLB, Job 1:21) More specifically, God has given life to each of us to do his work on Earth. Our bodies belong to God, not to ourselves. So, it is up to Him to decide when our work on Earth is finished, not up to us: Haven't you yet learned that your body is the home of the Holy Spirit God gave you, and that he lives within you? Your own body does not belong to you. For God has bought you with a great price. So use every part of your body to give glory back to God because he owns it. (TLB, 1st Corinthians 6:19-20) Life has its ups and downs, and the down times are only temporary, even though it may not seem that way. Often, the hard times in our lives, when things seem hopeless, are really opportunities to learn valuable lessons such as humility, dependence on God, the value of prayer, or to learn how to help others who are suffering. In times when things seem the worst, we can be sure that God loves us more than ever.
