dc.description.abstract

Self-administered questionnaires were completed by 1768 college students enrolled in freshman level psychology courses at Southwest Texas State University. Of these, 5.7% of the males and 6.1% of the females indicated they had seriously considered a suicide attempt during the previous six months. Those reporting such suicidal thoughts tended to be characterized by inner turmoil, poor self concepts, decreased life satisfaction, and self-reported drug abuse and drinking problems, delinquency, and a history of family problems dating back to childhood and adolescence. Implications for student affairs are presented.
