Please note:This is just an indicator of behaviors that usually precede a teen's placement in some kind of program. It is not intended to and should not replace a professional opinion. Suicide issues are complex and should be handled extremely carefully with a trained medical care giver. Immediate placement may be needed even if only one question was answered "yes". I will not hold www.teen-success.org responsible for any problems arising from use of this questionnaire.
