Self-reported suicidal behaviour & attitudes toward suicide in psychology students are reported & compared in Ghana, Uganda, & Norway. Small differences only were found in own suicidal behaviour. However, experience of suicidal behaviour in the surroundings was more common in Uganda. The most pronounced difference was that the Norwegian students were more reluctant to take a stand on these questions compared to their African counterparts. Some differences were also found between the two African countries. The implications of the results for suicide prevention in Africa are discussed. (43 refs.)
