SILVA, Maísa Carvalho  e  FARO, André. Suicidal behavior and religiosity in psychology students. Mudanças [online]. 2020, vol.28, n.1, pp. 35-42. ISSN 0104-3269.

The present study aimed to assess suicidal behavior in psychology students and to analyze its relationship with religiosity. Method: 129 students of both sexes Participated, aged between 17 and 53 years, from different periods of the psychology course. The instruments used were a sociodemographic questionnaire, the Revised Suicidal Behavior Questionnaire (QCS-R) and the Duke Religiosity Index (DUREL). The results showed that students aged between 21 and 23 years old, 70.5% said they had thought or tried to kill themselves, 24% thought about committing suicide in the last 12 months, 28.7% communicated the suicidal intention to someone and 11.6% considered the possibility of killing His or herself in the near future. Regarding religiosity, the intrinsic dimension showed an average of 8.28 (SD = 3.96). The hypothesis of religiosity as a protective factor was corroborated, since it appeared to inhibit or reduce the appearance of suicide risk behaviors.
