Do you know what suicide-contagion is? Have you ever heard of the term? If not, you are not alone.

Most people have not heard of the term because it is not a concept we talk enough about. Sadly, many school districts, urban areas, and rural areas experience this phenomenon.

Suicide-Contagion includes 3 important components:

1. It happens closely after a suicide of another person in a small sector or environment

2. It tends to happen in large numbers or groups

3. There is often a reason for the suicides. For example, a religious group holding certain beliefs about life, a group of teens who are being bullied, or teens in a remote rural area who are codependent.

Have you noticed the power of influence on any of your students when it comes to suicide?

Looking forward to your experiences.

You can learn more about this topic in my upcoming new book: Understanding and Helping Suicidal Teens - Therapeutic Strategies For Parents & Teachers
