This article examines the prevalence of adolescent suicides & suicide attempts (USA & European data). It reports on studies of depressive symptomatology among nonreferred adolescents & tentatively concludes that in combination with a depressed mood, only certain specific depressive symptoms (eg. suicidal thoughts, hopelessness, withdrawal from life in general & from pleasurable activities) are correlated with suicidal behaviour.
