In this study, people leaving school were given an initial battery of psychological tests, & then retested 4 to 8 years later to assess the enduring nature of ideation. Suicidal ideation was significantly associated with measures of depression, self-esteem & locus of control 8 years previously. The authors conclude that the premise of the enduring nature of ideation, & continuing morbidity is correct. (VM)
