14. Adolescent suicide and suicidal behavior
Bridge, JA; Goldstein, TR; Brent, DA
This review examines the descriptive epidemiology, and risk and protective factors for youth suicide and suicidal behavior. A model of youth suicidal behavior is articulated, whereby suicidal behavior ensues as a result of an interaction of socio‐cultural, developmental, psychiatric, psychological, and family‐environmental factors. On the basis of this review, clinical and public health approaches to the reduction in youth suicide and recommendations for further research will be discussed.
