Suicide PreventionIt is potentially harmful to suggest that bullying frequently leads to suicide when, in fact, the connection between bullying and suicide is very complex. A integrated approach should be considered to preventing suicide and youth violence, which focuses on shared risk and protective factors such as:

  • Individual coping skills
  • Family and school social support
  • Supportive school environments
