  • Anxiety, agitation, unable to sleep or sleeping
    all the time
  • Dramatic mood changes
  • No reason for living no sense of purpose in life

21
Sexual Assault Victimization and Suicidal Behavior
  • Based on research by Sarah Ullman, et al., (2004)
  • It is well established that women attempt suicide
    more than men
  • Females made three suicide attempts for each
    attempt made by a male

22
  • 1 in 10 adolescent girls are estimated to attempt
    suicide in their lifetime
  • Compared with 1 in 25 adolescent boys

23
  • 5 of U.S. adults made a lifetime suicide attempt
  • Two-thirds of which were female

24
History of sexual victimization
  • 20-30 of women have been sexually abused in
    childhood and/or adulthood
  • Sexual revictimization is also common with one
    third of child sexual abuse

25
  • Women with a history of sexual victimization have
    also reported
  • PTSD
  • Depression
  • Sexual problems
  • Physical health problems
  • Increased healthcare utilization

26
  • Adults reporting sexual and/or physical abuse in
    childhood report more
  • Self harm
  • Suicidal ideation
  • Suicidal behavior
  • Than those without a childhood victimization
    history.

27
  • The link of childhood trauma and adult self-harm
    or suicide is strongest when abuse was
  • Of long duration
  • By known perpetrators
  • Involved force and/or penetration

28
Suicidal behavior may be at higher risk if
  • Younger
  • Less educated
  • Unemployed
  • From certain ethnic minority groups (Latina)

29
Self Harm
  • Women who had been sexually abused as children
    reported more self-harm
  • Especially if they had experienced more intrusive
    and frequent abuse

30
Suicide Lesbian, Gay and Bisexuals
  • Compared with their heterosexual peers, lesbians,
    gays and bisexuals youths have higher rates of
    suicidal ideation and attempted suicide
  • It is possible that risk markers for suicidal
    behavior differs between LGB and non-LGB
    individuals

31
  • If differences are true, than suicidal
    interventions that generically target risk
    markers without regard to sexual orientation may
    be ineffective

32
Non-LGB populations
  • Problem drinking
  • Problem drug use
  • Depression
  • Were all found to be associated with elevated
    risk for suicidal ideation and suicide attempts

33
LGB populations
  • Problem drinking and depression
  • Were found to be associated with elevated risk
    for suicidal ideation

34
LGB Populations
  • Problem drinking, drug use and depression were
    NOT associated with increased risk for suicide
    attempts

35
Conclusion
  • LGB adolescents and young adults may need a
    different treatment focus
  • And alternate points of entry to health services
