The results of a literature review in Korea has the limitation of operant categorization of various factors, but psychiatric disorders of adolescents need to be treated aggressively in order to prevent suicide attempts and suicidal ideation of adolescents. Measures that take into consideration the risk factors for suicide attempt that were investigated by analyzing secondary resources, and the suicide method inclined to be used by each age group need to be taken into account when designing a suicide prevention program. The number of national basic livelihood security recipients, the unemployment rate (the rate of unemployment in ages 15 years old or older) and inter-regional differences in risk factors of patients aged 12–18 years treated for depression need to be considered when establishing measures to prevent suicide in each area. Therefore, there is need for prudent press release in consideration of the effects for each age group and keyword.
