This presentation reported on a follow-up study of 25 dischargees (1/6th of the original sample). Instruments of measurement & data analysis are discussed. Using non-parametric statistics with less power than parametric statistics, the authors found histories of less frequent suicidal behavior at follow-up than at admission among the youths discharged from 1 to 4 years previously. At this point in the ongoing study, causes of the improvement in suicidal behavior are unkown.
