Suicidal Behavior and Gay-Related Stress among Gay and Bisexual Male Adolescents.

Rotheram-Borus, Mary J.; And Others

Abstract: In contrast to attempted suicide rates of 9-12% among adolescents in community- based studies, attempted suicide was reported by 39% of 138 self-identified gay and bisexual adolescent males presenting in a social service agency for lesbian and gay adolescents. Findings suggest that gay youths are at increased risk for attempting suicide. (TJQ)
