The purpose of this non-experimentally designed study was to

investigate the relationship between HIV disease classification,

depression and suicidal intent. A convenience sample of eighty HIV

infected persons was obtained from The Bering Care Center in

Houston, Texas. The Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), the

Hopelessness Scale (HS), and a Demographic Data Sheet (DDS) were

used to collect data.



Subjects were classified into three groups; HIV positive (19; 24

percent), ARC (26; 33 percent), and AIDS (35; 43 percent). The

majority of subjects were male (77; 96.3 percent) homosexuals (57;

71.3 percent) who had completed some college education (44; 55

percent). Thoughts of suicide occurred at some time since HIV

diagnosis (70; 88 percent).



An ANOVA indicated a significant difference between subjects with

ARC (x=9.6923, n=26) subjects with AIDS (x=8.8571, n=35), and

subjects who were HIV positive (x=13.2105, n=19) on measures of

suicidal intent. Subjects with ARC (x=23.1538, n=26) and AIDS

(X=23.1286, n=35) were significantly more depressed than HIV

positive subjects (x=14.8421, n=19). These findings indicate a need for

early assessment and interaction.
