Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v29 n1 p25-36 Spr 1999
Study considers variables that distinguish between attempters, ideators, and nonsuicidal youth in a sample of homeless and runaway adolescents. Analyses reveal five variables that best distinguish among the three groups: self-esteem, depression, physical abuse, sexual abuse, and having a friend who attempted suicide. Suggests that accumulation of these risk factors increases the chance of suicidal behavior. (Author/JDM)
