AIDS-Related Factors Predictive of Suicidal Ideation of Low and High Intent Among Gay and Bisexual Men
Schneider S G~~et al
AIDS-related stressors were studied in relationship to suicidal ideation & suicide intent among 778 gay & bisexual men (none with AIDS). Over the previous 6 months, 27% reported suicidal ideation. Those reporting ideation were more likely to report recent bereavement, recent ARC diagnosis & close friends with ARC. News of HIV seropositivity was associated with low intent suicidal ideation while stressors which challenged adaptational capacities were associated with high intent suicidal ideation.
