Abstract (Summary)

People who commit suicide are often more likely to be suffering from depression and feelings of worthlessness. Different ethnicities have different rates of suicide. There are various reasons for this, including family support or lack thereof, individualistic versus collectivist cultural norms, and stress. This study looks at the relationship between feelings of depression among various ethnic groups, and whether one ethnic group has a higher prevalence of depression and feelings of worthlessness than the others. Results of this study can be used to help determine the populations that are in need of suicide prevention programs the most, and ways to customize the programs for those high-risk ethnicities.
