  1. The rate and characteristics of suicide attempters in the native Hawaiian adolescent population.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association. Philadelphia USA, 1994/05/12.

    Native Hawaiian high school students, N=1779, were surveyed for symptoms of psychopathology and suicide attempts in the previous 6 months.

    Seventy-seven (4.3%) of the students reported making a suicide attempt.

    There were no significant differences in prevalence rates for males and females.

    Depression, anxiety, aggression, substance abuse symptoms, and low family support, but not peer support, were significantly correlated with suicide attempts.

    On logistic regression, depression, substance abuse, and family support independently predicted attempts.

    The lack of gender difference may indicate a cultural characteristic of the Hawaiian population that differentiates it from mainstream American populations but likens it to the Native American population.
