In this chapter we integrate an educational and a public health view of youth suicide and bullying, allowing a more comprehensive perspective on the correlates, predisposing factors, and evidence-based interventions for bullying and suicide among youth. Utilizing a social-ecological view, we examine families, schools, and the greater communities, and apply this view to the prevailing definitions and scope of the problem of bullying and suicide among youth. We also assess the cultural, educational, and public health challenges involved. We examine the public health goals of prevention efforts linked to bullying and suicide. We conclude with recommendations for community planning and decision making to reduce peer- and self-directed violence among youth.
