Abstract
Here, we summarize the current state of research pertaining to suicidal thoughts and behaviors in youth. We review their definitions/measurement and phenomenology, epidemiology, potential etiological mechanisms, and psychological treatment and prevention efforts. Suicide has become one of the leading cause of death in adolecesnt age group. In this abstract we are trying to find out causes of increasing trends and preventive stratigies.
Teenage suicide continues to be a serious issue both worldwide and in Romania and, therefore, it deserves to be studied by educators, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and sociologists. A close study of literature in the field of adolescent/ teen suicide over the last fifty years shows that it has been studied in a relatively small number of countries. Three types of causes/ factors/ stressors/ triggers for adolescent suicide are illustrated with examples from literature: biological, environmental, and psychological.
