Suicidal ideation is an irrational autogenic desire to die. Suicide Ideation refers to the thoughts about taking one’s own life with some degree of intent (Johnson, 2006). The rationale behind suicide, which is defined as the intentional taking of one’s own life, can be as simple or as complex as life itself. The first stage beyond childhood is adolescence, no longer considered just a continuation of childhood. It is a very turbulent period, which requires adjustment to change in the self, in the family, and in the peer group. The aim of the present study is to explore the association of suicidal ideation with parenting style and family environment among Adolescents. A sample of 240 Adolescents was taken from different colleges of Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh. The age range from 15-18 years. Analysis of variance was used to analyze the data. Results indicated that parenting influence significantly suicidal ideation in adolescents. Sibling status also influences significantly suicidal ideation in adolescence. The pattern of education influence significantly suicidal ideation in adolescence. Parenting, Sibling status and pattern of education mutually interact in determine suicidal ideation in adolescence. Suicidal ideation in adolescence is a public health issue among adolescents and demonstrates the importance of considering parenting. Understanding family-related suicidal ideation risk factors can help to predict and prevent suicides among adolescents.
