Resumen

We studied a convenience sample of 54 HIV-positive men, recruited from HIV/AIDS community based service organizations. Data were collected on HIV risk factors and suicidal behaviours. Fifty-nine percent of the sample reported ever thinking about suicide, and 50% of those individuals reported attempting suicide at some point in their lives. Suicide ideation and attempts were more common among white participants. Suicidal behaviours were prevalent in this sample suggesting a need for mental health and suicide interventions targeted for this population.
