This chapter provides a summary of a landmark study in child and adolescent psychiatry. Youths with a history of psychiatric illness are known to be at greater risk of suicide. What are the predictors of suicidal events and attempts in adolescents with a history of suicide attempts and depression? Starting with that question, it describes the basics of the study, including funding, study location, who was studied, how many patients, study design, study intervention, follow-up, endpoints, results, and criticism and limitations. Several characteristics were identified that correlated with subsequent suicidal events. The chapter briefly reviews other relevant studies and information, discusses implications, and concludes with a relevant clinical case.
