Using a nationally representative sample of 16,296 American high school students, the authors examined those who reported attempting suicide but did not report a suicide plan in the past 12 months. Results from logistic regression analyses showed that the 15% of attempters who did not report planning were as likely to receive medical treatment after their attempt as the attempters who did report planning. All attempters, regardless of planning, were at high risk for fighting. (23 refs.)
