Usage d'Internet et comportements suicidaires à l'adolescence

Abstract : The impact of Internet on the suicidal behaviour of adolescents is an emerging research topic that appeals to the general public and health professionals. This work is an exploratory study pilot aimed to describe the use of Internet among suicidal adolescents, in Reunion Island, French region particularly concerned by the suicide of 10-24 years. A questionnaire built through the literature review includes an assessment of the Young criteria for problematic use of the Internet, as well as a questionnaire CBCL presented to 15 teens and their parents, within medical structures involved in the care of suicidal adolescents. The survey found a prevalence of 33.3% of problematic use of Internet for this population and two thirds of subjects relating experiences or activities on the Web with negative risk for psychopathology in a suicidal gesture. We find no association to specific clinical criteria depending on the use of the Internet for these young people who globally show pathologic internalized dimensions, but the work of more large scale are needed. The development of strategies of awareness for the risks of Internet use seems more than necessary, notably to involve more parents in their children's connection to the new technologies of information and communication and Internet.
