The aim of the present study was to find out the difference in suicidal tendency and self-efficacy with reference to gender and family income among higher secondary school students. The participants were 70 higher secondary school students from different schools in the Rajkot city in Gujarat. The sample falls in the age range of 16-18 year. Suicidal tendency scale constructed by Bhatt and Meghanathi and Self-efficacy scale constructed by Schwarzer and Jerusalem was used to measure suicidal tendency and self-efficacy respectively among higher secondary school students. The result of ‘t’ test revealed significant impact of gender and family income on suicidal tendency among students. It was observed that the boys had less suicidal tendency and higher level of self efficacy than girls. Moreover, it was observed that family income had significant impact on suicidal tendency where students with high family income experienced more suicidal thought than students of low income group. Family income had no impact of self-efficacy of students. The correlation between suicidal tendency and self-efficacy reveals negative but significant relation.
