Monday Free Download: Perceived Academic Performance as an Indicator of Risk of Attempted Suicide in Young Adolescents
Perceived academic performance is based on a very simply construct: "How do you think you will go in the end of term (end of year) exams?" or "How do you think your studies are going?"
