In 2021, AAP partnered with the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists and Children’s Hospital Association to declare a national emergency in child and adolescent mental health. The American Academy of Pediatrics, (AAP) along with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), in collaboration with experts from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), created this Blueprint for Youth Suicide Prevention as an educational resource to support pediatric health clinicians and other health professionals in identifying strategies and key partnerships to support youth at risk for suicide. Please share these resources. We NEED to get better at helping our kids stay alive! Thank you! Nancy

Did you know that among youth in the US who die, over 25% die from suicide?
