Depressive symptomatology & suicidal behavior were evaluated in a multiethnic sample of 48 delinquent females (13-18) by subjective reports. Standarized psychological tests identified 4 personality patterns (borderline, antisocial, neurotic & socialized delinquent). Level of depression & frequency of suicidal behavior were both significantly related to personality. Level of depression was also significantly related to ethnicity but not to socioeconomic status.(NBB)
