Young boys and girls are much more likely to commit suicide if they are homosexuals, explained Vittorio Lingiardi, psychiatrist and professor at the University La Sapienza in Rome, during a two-day international conference held in Rome for World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10). Mr. Lingiardi maintained that the lack of social support is one of the reasons that the inclination to commit suicide is almost three times higher in young homosexuals.
