Prevalence, Correlates, and Treatment of Lifetime Suicidal Behavior Among Adolescents

Estimates the lifetime prevalence of suicidal behaviors among US adolescents. The authors point out that the adolescents involved in the study typically began receiving services prior to the onset of suicidal behaviors – i.e. the treatment these youth received did not prevent them from thinking about, planning, or attempting suicide. However, the analysis could not determine how many of the adolescents would have become suicidal had they not received treatment.
