The Early Detection of Emotional Disorders Program is a 3-year prospective repeated measures design epidemiological survey of a range of emotional problems & disorders in over 3,000 young people from 27 high schools in South Australia. This presentation was about the self-report suicidal behaviours as measured on the Adolescent Suicide Questionnaire (ASQ-R). The complexity of measuring specific items in young people over the 3 years was discussed, as was the utility of a total suicidality score in this normal population.
