Juvenile Suicide in Confinement: A National Survey
Although youth suicide in the community has been identified as a major public health problem, juvenile suicide in confinement has received scant attention. This is a report on the first national survey on juvenile suicide in confinement. The primary goal was to determine the extent and distribution of juvenile suicides in confinement (i.e., juvenile detention centers, reception centers, training schools, ranches, camps, and farms). The survey gathered descriptive data on the demographic characteristics of each victim, the characteristics of the incident, and the characteristics of the juvenile facility in which the suicide took place. The study identified 110 juvenile suicides occurring between 1995 and 1999. Charts and tables.
