Suicide is a serious public health problem all around the world with lasting effects on individuals, families, and communities. One high-risk group that expresses a special concern is adolescents due to the significant increase in their rates of suicide over the years. There are a number of risk factors associated with suicide which include exposure to suicide, living with a mental illness, and substance abuse. Protective factors are also an important consideration associated with suicide which includes social connectedness, positive coping skills, and access to effective mental health care. Understanding the relationship between both risk and protective factors of suicidal behaviors are important considerations in suicide prevention. Within societies today there are many different types of intervention programs and other forms of assistance for individuals who experience suicidal behaviors.
