To achieve these goals, the study was based on the measuring tool of suicide developed by Rudd and translated into Arabic by Husain Fayed in 1989. The size of total sample of the study amounted to 2,800 students, (1,189) secondary school students, (595 males) and (549 females). The number of university students is 1,611 - from Thamar University (813 males) and (789 females).

With regard to university students only 118 students, i.e. 7.3% (65 males, 5.3 %), and 6.6% (53 females) had ideation of suicide. There was no significance among students in terms of gender and educational level.
