The present paper investigates the risk of lifetime suicide ideation associated with problem-solving ability & attitudes toward suicidal behavior in a sample of 328 university students. Almost one-third of the students surveyed had lifetime suicide ideation. Both genders were similar in results with the exception that male students were more in agreement with the attitude that suicidal behavior lacks real intent. 1 in 4 planners reported that they would more than likely attempt suicide at some point in their life.
