In this study, the McIntosh inventory of beliefs about suicide was given to both American & Turkish undergraduates. The authors’ hypothesis was that since suicide was infrequent in Turkey, the Turkish students would be less informed than American students. This theory was substantiated by the results in most respects. American students were also found to have considered suicide more often than Turkish students. (VM)
