This study investigated the influence of gender differences in simulated suicide notes. Notes from 48 male & 68 female college students were analyzed. Results indicate that women expressed interpersonal concerns for others more often in their notes. Escape, rather than revenge or self-punishment, was the most common reason for suicide. (1 ref) (SC)
