Description:

Given that mental health issues often co-occur with academic difficulties, schools provide an important context for the early identification of student mental health needs. One serious and widespread mental health issue that has received increased attention in recent years is nonsuicidal self-injury (e.g., self-cutting without lethal intent). In particular, there has been mounting concern among parents, educators, and school practitioners that nonsuicidal self-injury may be associated with increased risk for suicidal behavior among students. In my presentation, I will explore findings on the link between these two forms of self-injurious behavior, and present research that I have done to assist schools in identifying students most at risk for suicidal behavior.
