The sample consisted of 303 university students from Mexico (mean age = 19.73, SD = 1.73) who completed a questionnaire about the variables of interest. The relationships among the variables were analyzed using structural equation modeling. The results show that sexting was associated with being the victim of cyberbullying, which, in turn, was related to depressive symptoms. In addition, sexting, cybervictimization, and depressive symptoms were significantly associated with suicidal ideation. These results contribute to a better understanding of the relationship between online risk behaviors, such as sexting, and their possible negative consequences, such as cybervictimization, depression, and suicidal ideation. Keywords cyberbullying, depression, sexting, suicide, university students In the present day, information and communication technology (ICT) has pre-cipitated rapid social, cultural, and inter-personal changes (Amichai-Hamburger, 2002; McMillan & Morrison, 2006; Millán, Perez, & Zamora, 2014). The use of ICT is widespread among people of all ages; however, during adolescence and youth, an even greater frequency of use has been observed as youth have incorpo-rated ICT into daily life, using it in education, socialization, and entertainment (Kuss & Griffiths, 2011; Young, 2008). ICT has revolutionized interpersonal rela-tionships in many ways, creating new spaces to carry out intimate and private communication and sexual interaction (Gámez-Guadix, Almendros, Borrajo, & Calvete, 2015).
