Objective: To determine whether an association exists between electronic vapor product use (EVP) and suicidal behavior in middle and high school students
Methods: Multilevel logistic regression analysis for suicidal behaviors using data from the 2017 Vermont Youth Risk Behavior Survey.
Results: Middle school EVP users were significantly more likely to report suicidal behavior than non-users. No statistically significant association was found in high school students.
Discussion: While further study is necessary to clarify the relationship between EVP use and suicidal behavior, these findings highlight the need for suicide prevention and smoking cessation efforts.
