Although it is by no means the case that the majority of suicide attempts are made by adolescents with such a personality disorder, most of the research focus in suicide is on Axis 1 40 2:8 P1: KSF 0521812380c03 CB742/Sofronoff 0521812380 May 26, 2004 EMOTIONAL PROBLEMS AND ADOLESCENT SUICIDE disorders (mental disorders); further research may be warranted in the area of personality disorders. , 1992). Because it is not possible to retrieve data concerning the immediate mental status at time of death, it cannot be known how many completed suicides were in the early stages of schizophrenia and were undiagnosed.

Dixon, Heppner, and Rudd (1994) suggested that problemsolving appraisal, problem-solving skills, or a combination of the two are associated with an increase in levels of hopelessness and thoughts about suicide. They reanalyzed the data used by Rudd et al. (1994) and showed a direct link between hopelessness and suicidal thoughts, and an indirect link (by way of hopelessness) between problem-solving appraisal and suicide intent. Since hopelessness appears to be less consistently linked to suicidal behavior in young people, these links still need to be tested with adolescents.

Rudd, Rajab, and Dahm (1994) used two groups – suicide attempters (n = 43) and suicide ideators (n = 57) – to test a model suggesting that hopelessness bridged the gap between stressful life events and suicidal thoughts. They suggested that this relationship would be moderated by problem-solving appraisal (a self-rating of one’s ability to solve problems). Although the age range of 18–37 years indicates that this was largely an adult rather than an adolescent study, the method used is of interest, as are the findings.
