Young women who had attempted suicide (N=103) had scores similar to those of a nonsuicidal group (N=24) on a validated Death Anxiety Scale. Although the lethality of the suicide attempt was not significantly related to death anxiety, there was a weak but significant negative correlaton between measures of suicidal intent and death anxiety, indicating stronger suicidal intent in subjects with less death anxiety.
