Abstract: The exploratory study conducted by Yang, Burrola, and Bryan (2009) provides an excellent platform for calling attention to the issue of suicide risk among elementary and middle school youth. Using their study as a catalyst, with this commentary the author considers the finding that 12 percent of the young people surveyed acknowledged that they had “seriously considered suicide during the past year.” The author offers an alternative interpretation that focuses more explicitly on youth resilience and discusses how youth organizations can become more intentional and proactive in their overall suicide prevention aims.
