Abstract

Objective: To determine the baseline variables, including borderline personality disorder (BPD), associated with the six-month outcome of previously suicidal adolescents (n=263) presenting to an emergency department and treated predominantly as out-patients. Methods: Multivariate logistic regression was used to analyze the associations between baseline variables and suicidality at six-month follow-up. Results: BPD, previous suicide attempt(s), drug use and female gender were associated with subsequent suicidality. Conclusions: These findings corroborate previously reported risk factors for recurring suicidality among adolescents and broaden their generalizability to those presenting to an emergency department, many diagnosed with BPD.
