This study tested the hypothesis that college studentsÕ attitudes toward suicide would moderate the link between both hopelessness & depressive symptoms & their levels of suicidal ideation. This hypothesis was only supported among men, in which their levels of hopelessness & depressive symptoms were significantly related to suicidal ideation among only those with relatively positive attitudes toward suicide.
