About The Study: The findings of this study of 73,000 emergency department visits and hospitalizations for suicidality indicated the presence of seasonal patterns and an observed unexpected decrease in suicidality among children and adolescents after COVID-19–related school closures in March 2020, which suggest a potential association between suicidality and the school calendar.
