Self-reported suicidal behavior in Dutch secondary education students.

Self-reported suicidal behavior in Dutch secondary education students. From nearly 10,000 secondary education students in The Netherlands, aged 14-20, data were collected on the prevalence of suicide attempts and recent thoughts about suicide and death. In this sample, 3.3% of the girls and 1.3% of the boys indicated that they had attempted suicide. The youngest students already reported as many attempts as the eldest, which is remarkable. Differences between boys and girls and between various types of schools were not substantial. We also found that 5.2% of the girls and 2.2% of the boys currently had thoughts of suicide. Again, there was no substantial difference as regards sex, type of school, and age. There was, however, a (small) difference between boys and girls concerning thoughts of death--namely, 9.3% of the girls versus 4.8% of the boys. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Suicide & life-threatening behavior Pubmed
