The study examined relationship of personal and family environment correlates with suicide ideation among youth. Sample for the study consisted of 225 subjects drawn from Kurukshetra (Haryana). The objectives of the study were (a) to explore the association of suicide ideation with aggression, hopelessness, impulsiveness and family environment, and (b) to find out linear combination of different predictors of suicide ideation. The participants were assessed with Scale for Suicide Ideation, Aggression Questionnaire, Hopelessness Scale, Impulsiveness scale and Family Environment Scale. The data were analyzed by using Pearson Product Moment method of correlation and stepwise multiple regression analysis. Results demonstrated that suicide ideation was positively associated with aggression, hopelessness, and conflict measure of family environment and negatively associated with some measures of family environment.
