This resource guide was developed to further cultural competency for mental health clinicians working with suicidal Latino/a adolescents (ages 10-18) based on a comprehensive review of the literature. The development of the resource consisted of three main steps: 1. Reviewing the literature to determine risk and protective factors of suicide for Latino/a youth; 2. Reviewing literature to determine common themes of Evidence-Based Practices focused on addressing suicide for adolescents; and 3. Integrating the literature from both topics to inform the contents of the manual. The resource guide provides the results in a brief, user-friendly format for clinicians to use as an adjunct for treatment for suicidal behaviors in Latino/a youth. The manual also includes six exercises that were developed based on results from the literature review, including family-focused sessions. Recommendations for further study include evaluation from field experts and training workshops to receive feedback to support its efficacy in therapy and modify as needed.
