Youth Suicide Risk and Sexual Orientation.
Rutter, Philip A.; Soucar, Emil
Adolescence, v37 n146 p289-99 Sum 2002
Study examines the relationship between sexual orientation and youth suicide risk. The suicide risk demonstrated by sexual minorities in this study was no greater than that of their heterosexual peers. Youth who reported more external support demonstrated lower overall suicide risk and, specifically, lower levels of hostility, hopelessness, and suicidal ideation.
