Social-emotional learning approaches to teaching skills related to emotion-regulation and utilization of social support, and addressing victimization, are showing promise in reducing aggression and victimization among youth. Although the impact of these programs has not been evaluated in relation to suicidal behaviors, they offer a way of minimizing victimization, which in turn might have an impact on the rates of suicidal behavior. However, it is clear that social-emotional programs must be situated within a comprehensive, school-wide approach that addresses policies, trains teachers to respond effectively to bullying, and promotes a supportive and safe environment. We describe several evidence-based social-emotional learning prevention programs whose content spans beyond bully prevention and targets multiple risk and protective factors associated with bullying, peer victimization, and violence.
