[Design of a program to prevent adolescent suicide].


In the last decades a notorious increase in suicidal behaviors has been observed in youth. It has become an international health problem which justifies all prevention initiatives that are put forward in some western countries. The authors, given their experience in assessing and treating suicidal youth, design a prevention program addressed to suicidal risk groups, and whose aim is to curb down suicidal rates among adolescents in their Sanitary Area. This program applied in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Center is structured in five levels: Assessing, initial treatment, therapeutical intervention in the medium and long run, other interventions in the community, and evolution.
