Adolescent Suicide and Suicidal Behavior
Bridge, Jeffrey A.; Goldstein, Tina R.; Brent, David A.
Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, v47 n3-4 p372-394 Mar-Apr 2006
This review examines the descriptive epidemiology, and risk and protective factors for youth suicide and suicidal behavior. A model of youth suicidal behavior is articulated, whereby suicidal behavior ensues as a result of an interaction of socio-cultural, developmental, psychiatric, psychological, and family-environmental factors. On the basis of this review, clinical and public health approaches to the reduction in youth suicide and recommendations for further research will be discussed.
