This letter is a response to 2 previous articles which discuss preventive aspects of suicidal behavior among children & adolescents. The authors of this letter assert that, although the articles are helpful, they omitted the high-risk group of homosexual teenagers. They suggest this group requires support, intervention & research – particularly since they are often more vulnerable due to prevailing social attitudes. (VM)
