This study examines the life stress & problem-solving interactional model of suicide. 33 hospitalized suicidal adolescents were compared with 21 adolescents hospitalized for other psychiatric problems & with 89 controls. The assessment battery was composed of psychological measures, problem-solving measures, & environmental & family measures. The results suggest the importance of assessing suicide risk at the time of admission to minimize any subsequent changes in the risk group. (18 ref)
