This chapter reviews the various clinical settings in which suicidal behaviours occur among children and adolescents. The chapter focuses on primary care settings (family or paediatric practices), emergency rooms, intensive care units, mental health outpatient departments and inpatient units. The authors discuss the need for early screening of suicidality and its risk factors, management of these high-risk children and adolescents and the different clinical interventions that are available. These interventions include psychosocial and medication treatments that have varying rates of success and still need more studies. In all clinical settings a multidisciplinary approach to treatment is recommended. The importance of risk assessment and continuity of care are highlighted.
