dc.description.abstract <p>This study explores the capacity of Durkheim's suicide theory and Hirschi's control theory to explain the suicide ideation and suicide attempt of Asian youth. Using a sample of National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health, this research examines how parental support, exposure to suicidal behavior, education satisfaction can accumulate and lead to suicide ideation and suicide attempt among Asian youth. It also explores the effects of religion and marriage in shaping their suicide ideation and attempting suicide.</p> <p>The results reveal that exposure to suicidal behavior increases the likelihood of suicide ideation and suicide attempt for Asian youth. The results also reveal that education satisfaction is negatively related to suicide ideation and suicide attempt for Asian youth. The results are discussed in light of Durkheim's suicide theory and Hirschi's control theory, and the importance of studying suicide issues among adolescents.</p>
