What You Can Do To Prevent Youth Death

Learn the common factors associated with youth death and how to recognize warning signs to protect our youth from this complex issue. K-12 and college educators, mental health staff, and safety personnel have a number of responsibilities, ethically and legally, to maintain a safe learning environment for their students. Today’s youth are often subjected to interpersonal and/or intrapersonal violence and aggression. Homicide is now the 3rd leading cause of death among adolescents, while suicide recently surpassed homicide to become the 2nd leading cause. While males experience more physical aggression and violence, females are subjected to relational aggression to the extent that an increasing number turn to suicide. In fact, the female youth suicide rate increased 56% from 1999-2014 and continues to increase. Mandates such as the Jason Flatt Act require schools to train personnel on how to address these issues. Yet, due to other time demands, little time is spent doing so. This topic helps educators, mental health and safety personnel understand the impact of youth aggression and violence on the individual and the school climate. In addition, best practice on recognizing risk and protective factors in bullying, school associated violent deaths, homicide, intimate partner violence, sexual violence, suicide, targeted shootings, and prescription (e.g., Adderall) and nonprescription (heroin and fentanyl) drug use will be discussed. This information is critical for anyone working with today’s youth, as it affords the ability to identify, prevent and intervene with issues of aggression and violence.
