Résumé : We shall expose the results of a research on 16 adolescents hospitalized after a suicidal attempt. The study supposes that the adolescent, throughout his action, claims the uniqueness and authenticity of his existence. The clinical interviews, combined with systemic evaluation tools (free and imaginary genograms), lead out onto different results. If with some adolescents the will to exist predominates over the will to die ; others seem to await support and recognition of their differences by their environment. All of them show a lack of belonging feeling, which normally allows differentiation and gives a feeling of existence. As a result, the teenagers experience difficulties to feel registered in their filiation and to identify a constructive position in their genealogy. Taking into account those specificities, different therapeutic views will be suggested. © Médecine & Hygiène.
