Adolescent suicide is a serious public health problem and a major priority on the national health care agenda (Healthy People 2010). Suicide is one of the leading causes of death among adolescents. Moreover, suicide rates increase during the transition from late adolescence to early adulthood, thus, identifying this life-course transition as a period of increased risk. This proposal addresses this transitional period.
