Abstract

The purpose of this research was to determine whether an association exists between electronic vapor product use (EVP) and suicidal behavior in middle and high school students using data from the 2017 Vermont Youth Risk Behavior Survey. 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. 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.
