Suicide Attempts in Runaway Youths.
Stiffman, Arlene Rubin
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v19 n2 p147-59 Sum 1989
Explored suicidal behavior in 291 adolescents using runaway shelters in St. Louis. Found 30 percent of runaways reported having attempted suicide in past. Suicide attempters had significantly more behavioral and mental health problems, and reported having more family members and more friends with problems, than nonattempters. Substance use, behavior problems, family instability, and gender all helped explain suicide attempts. (Author/NB)
