Rachel Cafferty, MD, assistant professor of pediatrics, and Bruno Anthony, PhD, professor of psychiatry, are co-authors of a viewpoint article published December 28 by JAMA that calls for formal training in suicide prevention for frontline emergency clinicians and staff caring for children and adolescents. The commentary describes the growing public health problem of pediatric suicide, high risk patients and the front seat of the ED to this crisis and offers suggestions for clinical and policy-level solutions. They propose standardized screening practices and increased engagement with community partners and outpatient mental health services.
