Abstract

To determine the effects of cognitive behavioral therapy and peer leadership on suicidal ideation among adolescents in senior high school, this study design used quasiexperimental pre-post testing with control group. Participants (N = 86) were recruited by purposive sampling technique. Data were collected using the Beck Scale for Suicide Ideation and analyzed using the Wilcoxon test, the Friedman test, and the Mann-Whitney test. The results showed that the training received by mental health nurses reduced suicidal ideation among adolescents (p < 0.05). After further cognitive behavioral therapy and peer leadership interventions, suicidal ideation decreased from the lower rate to zero (p < 0.05). A combination of the training received by mental health nurses, cognitive behavioral therapy, and peer leadership are recommended for prevention of adolescent suicidal ideation.
