Suicide risk in abused teen girls linked to mother-daughter conflict

Among adolescents who suffered maltreatment as children, not all entertain suicidal thoughts. So what can we learn about those who do?

Researchers at the University of Rochester’s Mt. Hope Family Center have found an answer by looking at the relationships between teenage girls and their mothers.

In the study, published in the journal Suicide and Life Threatening Behavior, the researchers identified a stark correlation between both poor mother-daughter relationships and high degrees of conflict—with the likelihood of suicidal thoughts.
