MACEDO, João Paulo; SILVA, Brisana Índio do Brasil de Macedo  y  BEZERRA, Laís Leal da Silva. Suicidal ideation in rural settlements in Piauí. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2018, vol.12, n.3, pp. 1-10. ISSN 1982-1247.

The study aimed to investigate possible cases of suicidal ideation in rural settlement areas in Piauí. Therefore, a cross-sectional study was conducted in two rural settlements. A demographic questionnaire and the Self-Reporting Questionnaire (SRQ-20) were used and we looked at cases of common mental disorder in the population investigated, with special note to individuals who scored higher in the item about suicidal thoughts. SPSS was used for data analysis. Results showed that suicidal thoughts were more strongly associated with women, the number of children, being a house wife and having a common mental disorder. These variables, by themselves, are not predictors of suicide, but they evidence the vulnerability of women to suicidal behaviour.
