Scholarly Saturday-Acute behavioral interventions… strategies with suicidal adolescents

Yet another great article sent to me by @SunshineKayak on twitter.  A must follow of a barrage of mental health articles and resources. Not only that but it turns out I know two of the authors via twitter (Lead author Kimberly O’Brien  and one of the co-authors Jonathan Singer)…

..This article concisely outlines interventions during an acute suicidal episode and potential ways to respond. I like the emphasis on coordinating care and the need for family involvement. It presents a nice menu of clincal interventions to choose from. Hopefully there is one that you or organization can utilize to assist suicidal youth.
