Lewis, Selma A.; And Others
Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology, v16 n4 p459-71 Aug 1988
Twenty-six suicide attempters (ages 9-18) were compared with 725 nonattempters on measures of school achievement, educational goals, socioeconomic status (SES) and depression. Among reported results were significantly lower school achievement by suicide attempters, attributed to the effects of depression. Lower-SES youth were more likely to attempt suicide than higher-SES youth. (JW)
