A study of 240 attempted suicides indicated different patterns for males & females. The attempts for females seemed motivated more by severe interpersonal friction whereas the attempts of males tended to be preceded more by job loss, difficulties with the law, & alcoholism. The female attempters were more depressed than the males, but the males were more likely to be loners.
