This study compares 4 groups of college youths – those who completed suicide, attempted suicide, threatened or experienced suicide ideation, & a control group. The authors found that those who committed suicide were more likely to be male, from an intact middle-class family, receiving average grades, have parents with high expectations, & to be solitary, withdrawn, & isolated. More females than males attempted suicide, & their parents tended to be passive, & not provide much support.
