Cross-national examination of adolescent suicidal behavior: a pooled and multi-level analysis of 193,484 students from 53 LMIC countries

Abstract: Introduction Suicide is a leading cause of adolescent mortality worldwide. We aimed to estimate the prevalence and identify individual-level and country-level factors which might explain the variability in suicidal behavior among students in 53 low to middle income countries.

“…Self-injurious behaviors (both suicidal and non-suicidal) in adolescents are highly associated with an increased risk of suicide; self-injury is also the third leading cause of disability-adjusted life-years among adolescents aged 10 to 24 years old (Ilic & Ilic, 2022). The risk of attempting suicide is particularly high when self-injury behaviors occur over a long period of time and are performed using a variety of methods (Abio et al, 2022; Okuyama et al, 2022). However, the strongest risk factor for suicide in adults and adolescents is a history of previous suicide attempts (Fergusson et al, 2005).…”
