Abstract. Suicide is a major public health problem and one of the leading causes of death. Suicide risk factors include stressful life events, physical illnesses, psychiatric illnesses, past suicide attempts, childhood abuse and neglect, and so on. When the problem of adolescent suicide is a major public health problem in the world, in countries like Turkey, where the population is young, this issue makes more sense. With the increase, one can expect some differences in suicides and suicide attempts (reasons, types of suicide) and it may be necessary to treat patients presenting suicidal behavior in clinics other than psychiatric clinics of hospitals general. In this study, types of suicide, suicide risk factors, suicide attempts, adolescent problems, adolescent suicide risk, and adolescent suicide attempts and their characteristics were examined in the literature. Crisis intervention, suicide prevention, and suicide response programs were reviewed.

Keywords: Suicide, suicide risk in adolescents, suicide attempt, crisis intervention.
