GREY CHAVEZ, Yamarilis  y  CLARO TOLEDO, Yazmín. Teenagers with suicidal ideation in Camaguey. Rev Hum Med [online]. 2018, vol.18, n.2, pp.273-290. ISSN 1727-8120.

A descriptive transversal quantitative-qualitative study was carried out in order to do a psychological characterization of teenagers with suicidal ideation. They were treated in the psychology consultation of the Joaquin de Aguero Mental Health Community Center from the Pirre, Finlay and North policlinics health area in Camaguey province from January to December 2016. Therefore, this paper is aimed at showing the main results of the research process which is made reference to. Sixteen teenagers were selected as population. A pure intentional (non-probabilistic) sampling with inclusion and exclusion criteria was used and the final sample was 13 teenagers. Different methods were used: theoretical (analytic-synthetic, historical-logical, inductive-deductive), empirical (observation, interview, documents analysis (clinical record)), Family functioning test ((FF-SIL), Idaren, Ideren, Coopersmith Self-esteem) and statistical methods. It prevailed an age bracket between 13 and 15-year-old high school single teens. It prevailed nuclear single-parent and rejoined families. The short time parents share with children as well as the poor communication and the conflicts between them are family functioning risk factors. Self-esteem levels were low, with affection deprivation, loneliness feelings, lack of support and little tolerance towards frustrations. High anxiety levels such as state and trait were confirmed, as well as high state and low trait. The affective triad was found to be damaged (losses, failures and frustrations).
