Do medical students normalise suicide?

The study, conducted among 219 undergraduate and postgraduate medical students and 676 other students, showed those who scored high on normalisation or glorification of suicide scales were more likely to not seek help for their own suicidal ideation.

Medical students in their sixth year were more likely to associate suicide with isolation and depression than first-year medical students.

Medical undergraduates were more likely to recognise the signs and risk factors of suicide than any other students.
