Suicide remains a leading cause of death among U.S. youth. Most experts maintain that screening for high-risk youth within the context of a comprehensive suicide prevention program is a cost-effective strategy.

This report attempts to clarify the issues surrounding screening as a strategy for youth suicide prevention.
