Henry Lohse
Youth Studies Australia, v.11 n.1, March 1992, pp.33-38.
Summary: This paper reports on and discusses an investigation into the suicide and attempted suicide records in Broken Hill over the past 15 years, highlighting the differences to national trends, suggesting some local influences and offering recommendations for the future.
