Don't Ask Don't Tell. Hidden in the crowd: The Need for Documenting Links between Sexuality and Suicidal Behaviours Among Young People.

From the Introduction:
Research in Australia has identified that same-sex attracted young people may be up to six times more likely to attempt suicide than the population in general, with those in rural areas being particularly at risk. The average age of same-sex attracted young people to attempt suicide is between 15 and 17 years, with most attempts occurring after self-identifying as gay but prior to having a same-sex experience (Nicholas, 1998).
