Suicidal Behavior in Children and Adolescents with Mental Retardation.
Walters, Anne S.; And Others
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v16 n2 p85-96 Mar-Apr 1995
This study documented suicidal behavior among 90 children and adolescents with mental retardation and psychiatric disorders in a psychiatric hospital. Suicidality was found in 21% of admissions and was distributed across gender, level of mental retardation, and psychiatric diagnosis. Results indicate that suicidality is an underrecognized but significant phenomenon in children and adolescents with mental retardation. (Author/PB)
