Letter to the editor from Leon Eisenberg of Harvard Medical School regarding a misleading statement which appeared in a paper on adolescent suicide, stating that men consistently outnumber women in suicide completions. Discusses data from other countries which does not support this claim. He states that these findings require better methods of suicide prevention as a matter of high priority for public health.
