Autodestructive (suicidal) behaviors as one of the indications of social pathology are sensitive markers of degree of social integration and are a subject of interest for researchers of many disciplines. In this work we will present 237 cases of 10 to 16 year-old patients that were hospitalized in clinics and hospital pediatric departments in Bydgoszcz. The maintenance or even increase in high incidence of suicidal attempts was proved in this age group.
key words: suicidal attempts • children and teenagers • preadolescence and adolescence
