Depressive symptoms were measured in a sample of Chinese adolescents (N=996) using the Chinese Beck Depression Inventory (C-BDI), and a range of stressors was assessed as potentials to the level of suicide ideation. In boys, most of the prediction was attributable to C-BDI scores. In girls, C-BDI scores, perceptions of low parental caring, and high conflict with parents had additive effects in predicting level of suicide ideation. (Author/JDM)
