Adolescent Sexual Orientation and Suicide Risk: Evidence from a National Study.
Russell, Stephen T.; Joyner, Kara
American Journal of Public Health, v91 n8 p1276-81 Aug 2001
Used data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health to investigate links between sexual orientation and suicidality. There was a strong link between adolescent sexual orientation and suicidal thoughts and behaviors. This relationship was mediated by critical youth suicide risk factors (depression, hopelessness, alcohol abuse, recent suicide attempts by a peer or family member, and experiences of victimization).
