Details

Suicidal ideation is a major problem among the youth population in both the developed and developing world, leading in 6% of the deaths among youths globally. In countries considered to have low suicidal behavioral issues such as the Americas, 5,000 suicides occur annually. The chapters in this book are based on an analysis of data from the most recent Global School-based Health Survey (GSHS). The GSHS has been conducted in over 86 countries in all of the World Health Organization’s regions. In this book, the authors aim to provide comparable data concerning the mental health of adolescents in 20 countries. The dependent variable used is suicidal ideation, while the independent factors include age, gender, food security, anxiety, loneliness, close friends, truancy, bullying, attachment, violence, smoking cigarettes or marijuana, alcohol abuse and parental understanding.
