  1. Arguments for and against teaching suicide prevention in schools.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To present arguments for and against the provision of curriculum-based suicide prevention programs in schools.

    Method 

    The authors developed their arguments independently, based on the available literature on school-based programs, prior to debating the topic at a national conference on suicide prevention.

    Results 

    The rationale for school-based programs is that the school has the responsibility :

    • to resolve problems that interfere with education ;

    • to teach health education ;

    • and to acknowledge a duty of care to parents and to the community as well as to youth.

    Primary prevention programs in schools are not aimed at so-called'at-risk'students, but potential'helpers'based on the knowledge that peers are a primary support for troubled adolescents.

    One measure of the efficacy of school-based prevention programs must be the extent to which there is an increase in the tendency for adolescents to turn to adults for help.

    There is ample evidence that increasing the tendency for adolescents to approach adults for help is achievable.

    The argument against such programs is that evidence from evaluation research suggests that they are ineffective, inefficient, not universally acceptable, and of questionable safety.

    Conclusions 

    Those persuaded by the positive argument will wish to see these programs adopted in all Australian secondary schools. (...)
