Suicide problems were presenting symptoms in 28.2% of psychiatric emergency evaluations seen in a 3-mo period. The 10-29 decades for females & the 10-19 decades for males were represented significantly more often than older decades. Race & marital status were not related to suicide problems. There were 17 known suicide attempts, but no known suicides in a 6-mo follow-up period. This finding is contrasted with the results of similar studies. (15 ref)
