An educational intervention was carried out in 30 of 225 teenagers and young adults at risk of suicidal behavoir during 2005, who belonged to 7 doctor´s offices from ¨Rafael Pantoja Ruiz¨ Polyclinic of Palma Soriano municipality, in order to evaluate their knowledge of that form of making an attempt on their lives. The percentage was used as a summary measure of the information obtained through a questionnaire used before and after the intervention and Mc Nemar´s test was applied with a 95 % significance level as well. The results of educational actions to modify that inappropriate conduct were very favorable as they were considered highly significant.
