This article begins by acknowledging the diversity within the American Asian population & the scarcity of information on suicide in this minority group. In analyzing what is known & what still needs to be learned about suicide among Asian Americans, this article provides a critical review of significant factors such as age, gender, religious & spirituality ties, acculturation, social support, familial dynamics, social integration as well as sexual orientation. In examining these factors, recommendations are also discussed related to interventions & existing research gaps. (66 refs.)
