Brief Summary in Lay Language

The “Netzwerk für Suizidprävention in Dresden” (Network for Suicide Prevention in Dresden; NeSuD) is a project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Health and led by the Institute of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy of the Technische Universität Dresden, in collaboration with the Werner-Felber-Institut für Suizidprävention und Interdisziplinäre Forschung im Gesundheitswesen e.V (Werner-Felber-Institute for Suicide Prevention and Interdisciplinary Research in Public Health). The project aims to improve the quality of healthcare for suicidal people in Dresden by creating a network of mental health care providers, informing about mental health and reducing barriers to help-seeking. The subproject “Universal prevention program in secondary schools” aims to inform adolescents (12 years of age and older) in secondary schools in Dresden about mental health, stress, suicidality and regional mental health care providers. A mental health promotion and suicide prevention program will be implemented and evaluated in secondary schools.

Brief Summary in Scientific Language

A randomized-controlled, prospective-longitudinal study design has been chosen for the evaluation of a universal awareness prevention program in secondary schools in Dresden for adolescents (12 years of age and older). We aim to collect data of a random sample consisting of ca. 37 school classes with 25 pupils each (total goal: 929 participants) clustered by school classes and schools. The sample will be stratified in three age groups (12-13 years of age, 14-16 years of age, 17 years of age and older), furthermore we strive to include different types of secondary schools (grammar schools, comprehensive schools, vocational schools). Pre-, post- and 6-months-follow-up-examinations will measure effects of the intervention on help-seeking, mental health literacy, stigmatization and attitudes towards mental health problems and suicidality among participants. In order to evaluate how suitable the program is for dissemination, teachers and students will rate acceptance and feasibility.

Interventions/Observational Groups

  •   Randomized allocation of ca. 19 school classes (ca. 465 students) to the intervention arm 1. After the baseline assessment (Pre), the school classes will receive an universal awareness prevention program for mental health promotion and suicide prevention. Two instructors will conduct the program over 4 school units (on one or two days). Straight after the intervention (post), as well as 6 months later (follow-up) further assessments will be conducted.
  •   Randomized allocation of ca. 18 school classes to a waiting control group. After the follow-up examination, these classes will also receive the same prevention program.
