1770 Native Hawaiian high school students were surveyed for symptoms of psychopathology & suicide attempts in the previous 6 months. 4.3% reported a suicide attempt. Depression, anxiety, aggression, substance abuse & low family support, but not peer support were correlated with suicide attempts. Regression, depression, substance abuse & family support independently predicted attempts. Little difference was found in the rates for males & females, which may suggest cultural factors.
