The Relationship of Drug Use to Suicide Ideation and Attempts among African American, Hispanic, and White Non-Hispanic Male Adolescents.
Vega, William A.; And Others
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v23 n2 p110-19 Sum 1993
Examined self-report cross-sectional and longitudinal data on associations between drug use, suicide ideation, and attempts among seventh-and eighth-grade males. African Americans had highest prevalence of six-month ideation; Haitians had highest attempts. For total sample, tranquilizers had highest odds ratio for ideation. Psychoactive drug use was consistently related to attempts among Hispanics, white non-Hispanics, and African Americans. (Author/NB)
