A study of self-poisoning in 25 Asian and 25 Caucasian adolescents is presented. Cultural conflicts were the most important factors in the parasuicidal behaviour of Asian children, whereas a variety of factors accounted for the parasuicidal behaviour of Caucasians with a predominance of a disrupted family background. There was little difference in the type of poisoning and the degree of pre-planning between the two groups.
