Suicide has become a major public health problem among young people around the world. This study will examine the effects of higher secondary school-based suicide prevention (HSSSP) program on youth suicidal thoughts and impulsive behavior (STIB). Therefore, the purpose of this study is to examine the effects of didactic approach for youth STIB on the HSSSP program.

This study is designed to address this issue at the secondary school level. Therefore, this research is divided into two studies. In the first study, our goal was to arrange a Baseline assessment for the screening process of adolescents at risk of suicide. while in second study we aim to implement a didactic approach based on religious teachings and culture milieu and examine its effects as an evidence based suicide prevention program.


Suicide has become a major public health problem around the world. according to a recent report by the World Health Organization (WHO) suicide is the fourth leading cause of death among youth. Suicidal thoughts and suicide attempts are on the rise among youth. Therefore, evidence-based prevention programs need to fill this gap with interventions at the higher secondary schools.

For decades, research and prevention efforts have been failed in developing meaningful predictions and reductions in suicide. However, significant efforts are needed to stop the rising tide of suicide. For the purpose, it is important to understand the suicidal thought at first as not everyone who commits suicide attempts suicide first.

Therefore, in this study an attempt has been made to investigate profoundly the understanding of suicide which has been emerged a serious problem around the globe and in particular in Pakistani society. The researcher has planned to conduct psychological measures with established psychometric properties to look at the relationship between suicidal ideation and impulsivity anticipating suicidal behavior. During study the role of moderators i.e. social effectiveness and level of religiosity shall also be investigated. Findings of this study shall comprehensively provide data in order to design an inclusive prophylactic strategy known as didactic intervention to prevent the suicidal act before it occurs. It is expected that this approach grounded on religious teaching and cultural milieu in line with the best practices, will be adapted. Subsequently, this study also aims to evaluate the effectiveness of the didactic approach as an evidence based suicide prevention program in higher secondary schools with selective prevention programs.
