“Miller, a seasoned school psychologist and an authority on suicidal behavior in young people, has provided what I view as the single most important work on this topic for any professional working in school settings. The thoroughly updated second edition reflects many changes in the field and includes new material on such crucial topics as coordination of care within schools and the prevention of burnout among school personnel. A practical, accessible, and complete treatment of this concerning public health problem.”

—Thomas E. Joiner, PhD, The Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Florida State University


“When reviewing a resource for schools, I look for three things—whether it is well researched, speaks to education professionals, and gives practical guidance to elevate practice and improve the lives, safety, and health of our next generation. Child and Adolescent Suicidal Behavior, Second Edition, ticks all these boxes. Miller provides a thorough grounding in theory, research, and practice in a way that is readable and engaging. Suicidal behavior is on a steady upward climb among our nation’s youth, making this a critical and timely read for school-based professionals and school leaders.”

—Pat Breux, RN, BSN, youth suicide prevention specialist, New York State


“Once again, Miller has provided a 'must-have' book for school personnel, educators, and clinicians. Miller shares his expertise and knowledge regarding the complex topic of youth suicidal behavior in an easy-to-understand manner. Resource-rich chapters address screening, identification, and comprehensive school-based suicide prevention programming. Clinicians will appreciate the coverage of youth-focused assessment measures as well as specific topics that need to be addressed during clinical interviews. This book has become my go-to resource, both when developing my university lectures and when working with elementary and secondary schools.”

—James J. Mazza, PhD, College of Education, University of Washington


“Miller has been a long-time leading expert in the area of youth suicide and an important voice in advocacy for school-based prevention, intervention, and postvention. He poignantly explains that while the topic of suicide is challenging for schools and communities to address, avoiding it too often results in further loss of life. The good news is that this book provides a comprehensive 'how-to' guide for schools to follow. Miller presents useful, evidence-based strategies and programs for school and clinical professionals. The second edition is even more user friendly and informative than the first, with an emphasis on incorporating suicide prevention into multi-tiered systems of support.”

—John Kelly, PhD, school psychologist, Commack School District, New York; past president, National Association of School Psychologists
