A study in the Journal of School Health found that the percentage of high school students who considered suicide declined 65% after taking the Surviving the Teens curriculum, which was created by registered nurse Cathy Strunk. Most of the students said the intervention "helped them to learn suicide warning signs, suicide and depression risk factors, how to cope with stress, steps to take if they or a friend felt suicidal, and how to talk to their parents and friends," Strunk said.
