Explanation of the Post

Approximately 50% of adolescent suicide attempters have made at least one previous attempt. The risk after an attempt may increase in school due to:

  • Stigmatization after a suicide attempt.
  • The rejection it can generate in the educational community.
  • Silence for fear of a new suicidal behavior.

Knowing the risk and protective factors related to childhood and adolescence will allow us to carry out adequate prevention.
