Can a 7 year old attemp suicide?


Any history of depression or anxiety disorders? No.

Any relevant psychiatric conditions in the family? No.

So how come?

Copycat after watching TV, in particular a movie where soldiers were hanged. He tried to do it himself.

Reference: Copycat suicidal attempt by a 7 year old boy after watching homicidal behavior in media: a case report - (CasesJournal)

Cases Journal is a peer-reviewed, open access journal publishing case reports from any area of healthcare that are understandable, ethical, authentic and include all information essential to its interpretation. I email subscribed to updates - very useful.

Abouts scarfs and teenagers, I had touched the "choking game" problem here.
