264 university students who were referred consecutively for psychiatric examinations were evaluated by the author using a detailed, precoded questionnaire based on the Feighner et al diagnostic criteria for psychiatric research. Histories including suicide behavior; thoughts, wishes, threats & attempts were all associated with the presence of affective disorders, but were not associated significantly with specific affective disorders. Attempts were more frequent than threats. 23 refs.
