Suicidal threats, which are verbal expressions of a wish to die by the individual’s own hand, are chosen very often by adolescents to communicate their suicidal intentions, and that something is about to happen (a suicidal act) to people who are attached to them affectively.A suicidal gesture is another way adolescents use to communicate their self-destructive intentions. Suicidal gestures consist on threats to commit suicide using any available means but not actually taking action, or simply carrying out an attempt without any serious physical harm, as for instance, superficial wounds on the forearm which do not require medical or surgical care (suture or blood transfusion, etc.)
