In a cluster, one death will beget another, with teenagers already teetering on the edge with depression or other mental illness seeing death as an escape from their internal demons and external pressures, Madelyn Gould, a professor of psychiatry and mental health at Columbia University, said.
In 90 percent of all suicides, the victim had a diagnosable mental illness, according to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, including 60 percent who suffered from depression.
The death of a peer, Gould said, "presents suicide as an option" to those already suffering.
"It makes it more real," Gould said.
The public attention may have been a significant contributing factor, according to Gould and Frank J. Zenere, the psychologist for the Miami-Dade Public Schools.
Instead of dwelling on a suicide, or memorializing the victim with plaques, T-shirts or Sharpie tattoos or dedicating the football team's next win in his or her name, experts have encouraged schools to focus on suicide prevention, identifying at-risk students and emphasizing life, Zenere and Gould said.
It's a very irrational thing to do, but when people are in an extreme psychological pain, reason is out the window," Gould said.

Madelyn Gould, Ph.D., M.P.H.
Madelyn Gould, Ph.D., M.P.H., is a Professor in Psychiatry and Epidemiology at Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons; a Research Scientist at the New York State Psychiatric Institute; and Deputy Director of Research Training Program in Child Psychiatry, Columbia University/New York State Psychiatric Institute.
Dr. Gould's longstanding research interests include the epidemiology of youth suicide, as well as the evaluation of youth suicide prevention interventions. Dr. Gould has received numerous federally funded grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIMH), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) for studies examining risk factors for teenage suicide; various aspects of cluster suicides; the impact of the media on suicide; the effect of a peer's suicide on fellow students; suicide crisis intervention programs in schools; the effect of youth suicide screening programs, and the utility of telephone crisis services. In addition, she received a W.T. Grant Faculty Scholar's Award to examine psychosocial risk factors for teenage suicide; and a Distinguished Investigator Award from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to investigate the role of the media in the initiation of suicide clusters.
Her participation in numerous state and national government commissions includes the 1978 President's Commission on Mental Health and the Secretary of Health and Human Services' Task Force on Youth Suicide in 1989. In addition, she authored the chapter on youth suicide prevention for the Surgeon General's 1999 National Suicide Prevention Strategy, and served as a leadership consultant for the Surgeon General's Leadership Working Group for the National Suicide Prevention Strategy.
Dr. Gould was a founding member of the New York State Suicide Prevention Council and has been actively engaged in the development of the suicide prevention plan for New York State. She contributed to the Center for Disease Control's community response plan for suicide clusters (1988) and recommendations to optimize media reporting of suicide (1994), and was a member of an international workgroup, sponsored by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and the Annenberg Public Policy Center, which updated these media recommendations in 2001.
The recipient of the Shneidman Award for Research from the American Association of Suicidology (AAS) in 1991, the New York State Office of Mental Health Research (NYSOMH) Award in 2002, and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) Research Award in 2006, Dr. Gould has a strong commitment to applying her research to program and policy development.
