The relationship between social & psychological correlates of youthful suicide victims & methods of lethality is examined. Data on those who commit suicide are also used to explore the suicide intent hypothesis, & the findings are discussed in light of recent claims that choice of method of lethality is useful for understanding completed suicide. The results suggest that a wide range of factors may be related to youthful intent & suicidal behavior. 24 REF. (NBB)
