Perceived academic performance, self-esteem and locus of control as indicators of need for assessment of adolescent suicide risk: implications for teachers

This was the second of three papers focused on 'perceived academic performance' as a useful (and non-threatening) tool for teachers (that is non-threatening to both the teacher and student). The question asks "How do you think you will go in the end of term (year) exams" (or variant). If the student answers: "I am going to fail, no matter what I do...", and there are other signs of emotional problems (eg low self-esteem, or a feeling their lives are out of control), then this may be the cue to get an assessment from the school counsellor, psychologist or guidance officer.
