Suicide is the second leading cause of death for young people worldwide. A significant amount of suicide attempts is known to be unplanned, but research on unplanned attempts among adolescents is limited. As knowledge on the profile of unplanned suicide attempts is crucial for effective prevention efforts, this study aims to characterize and compare three suicide behaviour profiles among adolescents: planned attempts, unplanned attempts and ideation without attempt.
