Abstract

Suicide is a leading cause of premature mortality and a major public health concern (1). It is more common in low‐ and middle‐income countries like Bangladesh, where the rate is 39.6 per 100,000 population, compared to the estimated global average of 11.4 (2). Adolescents represent more than one‐fifth of the Bangladeshi population (3), but there is limited information on how health behaviours like physical activity (PA) affect suicidal thoughts and behaviours in this vulnerable group. Identifying potentially modifiable risk behaviours is essential to reduce the country's adolescent suicide rate.
