I am on a committee to detect suicidal teens at the local schools. I suspect there are already programs that have been scientifically verified that we could use as a template. Can you identify such programs we could look at? I'll check my email in the AM.
I'm not sure the scope or depth of information that you are looking for, however, these article looks at a number of screening approaches for suicide in teenagers.
