Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of suicidal ideation (SI) and the related factors in high school students in Abdanan, Ilam province. 
Method: This crosssectional study enrolled 571 high school and pre-university students through multistage sampling in 2004, in Abdanan. Subjects were evaluated for suicidal ideation using Beckchr('39')s Scale for Suicidal Ideation, and by a demographic questionnaire that collected study variables (history of suicidal attempt, substance use, smoking, death of relatives). 
Results: Frequencies of severe suicidal ideation was 122 persons (21.4%); moderate suicidal ideation, 109 (19.2%); and no suicidal ideation was 339 (59.4%). Distribution of the subjects with suicidal ideation differed significantly by gender, school grade, major, history of psychiatric disorders, death of a relative in the past year, physical illness, history of suicidal attempt, parentschr('39') separation, and use of substance and cigarette. 
Conclusion: Identifying. suicidal ideas and the related factors is the first step in interventional studies and it appears that future studies should consider designing an appropriate intervention in that regard.
