Sklar K J
This investigation examines risk factors associated with adolescent suicide attempts. A sample of 50 hospitalized and 315 suicidal and non-suicidal high school students completed six self-report measures. The hospitalized adolescents had higher depression, hopelessness, and stress scores, and lower family cohesion and adaptability scores. Non-suicidals reported more peer relationship problems, less stress, and more family cohesion and adaptability.
