Little attention has been given in the professional literature to suicide among homosexual adolescents. 66 adolescent psychiatrist responded to a questionnaire on the subject. Results from this survey suggest that many experts are not working with homosexual adolescents. On the other hand, the majority of those treating them considered them to be at higher risk for suicide & agreed that their suicidal gestures were more severe than those of other adolescents.
