Victimized adolescents more likely to consider suicide

A new study from Quebec, using data from the Quebec Longitudinal Study of Child Development will be published in the Journal of the American Academy Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.  Reported in EurekAlert, this is the first study to show a predictive association between victimization, suicidal ideation and suicide attempt in mid-adolescence.  Being aware of a student’s history of victimization can help identify those at higher risk of suicide and aid in early intervention.
