This study explored gender differences in life stressors of 156 children & adolescents who died by suicide in Singapore from 1995-2003. Significantly more females were found to have had interpersonal/relationship problems as recent life stressors compared with males. No gender differences were found for family problems or school problems. Only interpersonal/relationship problems emerged as a significant predictor of female child & adolescent suicide. (43 refs.)
