Youth suicide continues to be a public health crisis in the United States. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) has identified four critical areas where a coordinated approach to suicide prevention can make a powerful contribution to this goal. One of these critical areas is healthcare systems. To fully equip these clinicians to develop the most effective suicide prevention interventions, it is important that they gain a complete picture of who may commit youth suicide. The central aim of this paper is to collect information relevant to suicide and suicide prevention to help educate allied healthcare professionals who may interact with suicidal populations.
