Peer victimization has been linked to adolescent suicide in several countries. Community adolescents from Hong Kong (n= 1694) and the United States (n=481) provided information regarding their experience of victimization, depressive symptoms, and suicidal ideation at two surveys six months apart. This study would examine the predictive relationship between peer victimization and suicidal ideation and the role of depressive symptoms in mediating this relationship. The implications of this study are discussed.
