In this study, 40 previously suicidal college undergraduates were asked to complete a questionnaire asking if they had confided in others during this time, and if so, if they found these people helpful or hurtful. The study found these people were still moderately suicidal. During their suicidal episodes, these students most frequently turned to friends & family. A wide range of comments were found, ranging from thoughtful to rejecting. Thus, whom one confides in when suicidal is important.
