Wagner, Barry M.
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v25 n3 p358-72 Fall 1995
Students (n=1050) in a mid-Atlantic state were divided into past suicide attempters, depressed students, and nondepressed students, and were compared for risk factors. Suicide attempters reported lack of adult support; more problems with parents, police, and sex; and increased incidence of physical abuse, running away from home, living away from parents; and knowing someone who had committed suicide.
