The effects of family, school, peers, and religion on adolescent suicidal ideation were investigated using self-derogation as a mediating variable. As was hypothesized, the effects of different social variables were largely mediated by self-derogation. Family variables were found to be more salient predictors of both self-derogation and suicidal ideation than were nonfamily variables.
