|- Public Title||E-learning modules for adolescent suicide prevention by gatekeepers.|
|- Scientific Title||Development and implementation of e-learning modules for adolescent suicide prevention by gatekeepers.|
|- ACRONYM||Mental Health Online|
|- hypothesis||The e-learning modules will improve the knowledge of gatekeepers regarding to the subject of adolescent suicidality (1) and their self-confidence level when interacting with suicidal adolescents (2).|
|- Healt Condition(s) or Problem(s) studied||Suicide, Knowledge, Self-confidence, Suicidality, Gatekeepers, Online Learning, Online Prevention, E-learning Modules|
|- Inclusion criteria||1. Gatekeepers that work with adolescents (12 to 23 years old);|
2. > 18 years;
3. Have access to internet.
|- Exclusion criteria||1. < 18 years;|
2. Do not have access to internet.
|- mec approval received||yes|
|- multicenter trial||no|
|- Type||2 or more arms, randomized|
|- planned startdate ||24-sep-2012|
|- planned closingdate||24-sep-2013|
|- Target number of participants||154|
|- Interventions||Eight e-learning modules have been developed, each capturing an important aspect of early detection, guidance and referral of suicidal adolescents. The modules will be available on the website http://www.mentalhealthonline.nl. The website has different features, such as literature and documentaries about adolescent suicidality, but also links to other related websites and an online discussion. The forum gives participants the opportunity to exchange thoughts, but also to ask a group of experts questions on the subject of adolescent suicidality.
Patients are assigned to either an intervention group (immediate access to the e-learning modules) or to a waiting list condition (access to the e-learning modules after 3 months).
|- Primary outcome||1. Knowledge;|
|- Secondary outcome||1. Attitude;|
|- Timepoints||1. Pre-test;|
3. Follow-up (3 months).
Participants receive three times (pre-, posttest and follow-up) an online questionnaire that takes approximately 20 minutes to fill in. This questionnaire consists of statements and questions regarding to the participants level of knowledge on adolescent suicidality, their level of self-confidence in interaction with suicidal adolescents and cases about possibly suicidal adolescents. During the posttest the intervention group will also be asked to fill out an evaluation about the e-learning modules which takes approximately 15 minutes to fill in.

|- Brief summary||In the last decade suicidality has been increasing slightly among adolescents in the Netherlands. Simultaneously, a need for more empirical research into mechanisms underlying adolescent suicidality to develop evidence based suicide prevention and intervention strategies has been noted. In 2011 the departments of Clinical- and Developmental Psychology at VU University Amsterdam started an adolescent suicide prevention program called eMental Health Onlinef. This program is focusing on the professionals working with adolescents, also known as gatekeepers. Eight e-learning modules have been developed, each capturing an important aspect of early detection, guidance and referral of suicidal adolescents. Currently the effectiveness of these modules is being tested in schools, centers for youth and families, and mental health institutions.|
