Background. This study examined associations between childhood circumstances, adolescent mental health and life events, and the development of suicidal behaviour in young people aged between 15 and 21 years. Method. Data were gathered over the course of a 21-year longitudinal study of a birth cohort of 1265 children born in New Zealand. The measures collected included: (1) patterns of suicidal behaviour (ideation, attempt) (15–21 years); (2) social background, family functioning, parental and… Expand
Suicidal behaviour in adolescence and subsequent mental health outcomes in young adulthood.
TLDR
There was evidence of an interactive relationship in which suicidal behaviour in adolescence was associated with increased risks of later substance use disorders in females but not males. Expand
[Suicidal behaviors among young adults: risk factors during development from early childhood to adolescence].
TLDR
Independent contributions to predicting suicidal behaviors in young adults were provided by early family adversity, suicidal Ideation during childhood and adolescence, and low self esteem (with regard to suicidal ideation) and novelty seeking ( with regard to suicide attempt), respectively. Expand
Childhood adversities and risk for suicidal ideation and attempts: a longitudinal population-based study
Background. Developmental adversities may be risk factors for adult suicidal behavior, but this relationship has rarely been studied prospectively. The present study examined the association betweenExpand
Early life predictors of adolescent suicidal thoughts and adverse outcomes in two population-based cohort studies
TLDR
There are groups of risk factors present in early life that can predict higher risk of suicidality in adolescence and these factors were also predictive of a range of adverse outcomes in adolescence. Expand
Suicidal Behaviour Among Adolescents and Young Adults with Self-Reported Chronic Illness
TLDR
Suicidal thoughts and behaviours are common among adolescents and young adults with chronic illness, particularly among those with comorbid mood disorders, and health professionals should routinely ask about STB during assessments of adolescent and young adult patients. Expand

TLDR
Suicidal ideation is more prevalent in TAY than adults, and its consequences may be aggravated by poor treatment-seeking behaviour in at-risk (i.e. depressed) individuals. Expand
Smoking and the risk of suicidal behavior: a prospective study of a community sample.
TLDR
The biological explanation of the finding that current smoking is associated with subsequent suicidal behavior is unclear, and recent observations of lower monoamine oxidase activity in current smokers but not ex-smokers might provide clues. Expand
Specific traumatic events elevate the risk of a suicide attempt in a 10-year longitudinal community study on adolescents and young adults
TLDR
The results suggest that both health professionals and health policy decision-makers consider specific TEs and the number of prior TEs as risk factors for SAs. Expand
Cognitive ability in early adulthood is associated with later suicide and suicide attempt: the role of risk factors over the life course
TLDR
Cognitive ability was found to be associated with subsequent completed and attempted suicide and the associations were attenuated by 45% after controlling for risk factors measured over the life course. Expand

TLDR
A loglinear model fitted to the measures of attempted suicide, adolescent psychopathology, problems of adjustment, and childhood circumstances suggested the presence of a causal chain process in which childhood problems were significantly related to increased risks of later psychopathology and problems of personal adjustment which were, in turn, related to significantly increased rates of attempted Suicide.

Risk factors for serious suicide attempts among youths aged 13 through 24 years.
TLDR
Risks of serious suicide attempt among young people increased with extent of exposure to childhood adversity, social disadvantage, and psychiatric morbidity, with each of these factors making independent contributions to risk ofserious suicide attempt. Expand
Psychosocial risk factors of child and adolescent completed suicide.
TLDR
The overall effect size on increasing suicide risk of the psychosocial factors is comparable with that for diagnostic factors, highlighting the importance of considering socioenvironmental factors when assessing suicide risk. Expand
Incidence and predictors of suicidal behaviors in a longitudinal sample of young adolescents.
TLDR
While there are a number of predictors of suicidal behaviors, the false-positive rate is high and focusing on proximal risk factors, particularly stressors in adolescent development, may overlook the fundamental role of underlying mental disorder and familial factors. Expand
The long-term sequelae of child and adolescent abuse: a longitudinal community study.
TLDR
While abused individuals were functioning significantly more poorly overall at ages 15 and 21 than their nonabused peers, gender differences and distinct patterns of impaired functioning emerged, which underscore the need for early intervention and prevention strategies to forestall or minimize the serious consequences of child abuse.

TLDR
The results of this analysis were consistent with a dimensional model of suicidal behaviors in which those attempting suicide are distinguished from those reporting suicidal ideation alone by having a greater burden of psychosocial risk factors including psychiatric disorder, adjustment problems, and adverse childhood circumstances. Expand
Physical punishment/maltreatment during childhood and adjustment in young adulthood.
TLDR
Those exposed to harsh or abusive treatment during childhood are an at-risk population for juvenile offending, substance abuse, and mental health problems and exposure to abuse appears to increase risks of involvement in violent behavior and alcohol abuse. Expand

TLDR
Deliberate self-harm was common but the great majority of episodes were not 'true suicide attempts' and it is possible that attributable mortality and morbidity may be greater in self- Harmers without definite suicidal intent. Expand

TLDR
A link has been found between the increase over time of suicidal behaviors in adolescent boys and a contemporaneous increase in substance misuse, which suggests that alcohol misuse is the causal factor. Expand

TLDR
A monolithic diagnostic risk profile for suicidality, ignoring gender- and age-specific risks, is inadequate and the contribution of substance abuse/dependence in the escalation from suicidal thoughts to suicide attempts is underscored. Expand
