- Depression
Conclusion:
- Micronesian Islanders, particularly Chuukese, Chamorros and Japanese are signifcantly over-represented in suicide deaths and consitute critical target groups for suicide prevention. suicide deaths occur among males. in previous version, this likely reflects the difference in choices of suicide method, with a higer proportion of males preferring hanging. Chamorros and Micronesian islanders are most likely to think about suicide and make a plan to commit suicide, but micronesian islanders exhibit the highest to actually attempt suicide. this finding is consistent with data from DPHSS that identifies Micronesian islandsers, particularly Chuukese, at the highest risk for death by suicide.
