Jose Luis Vazquez Martinez - 15 March 2022

Abstract: Adolescent suicide continues to be an urgent, public health concern. This presentation will discuss selected studies from a research program focused on developing evidence-based strategies for suicide risk screening, suicide risk assessment, and preventive intervention. Findings related to the multi-variable prediction of adolescent suicide attempts, the Computerized Adaptive Screen for Suicidal Youth (CASSY), and the Youth-Nominated Support Team intervention (YST) will be given special emphasis.
