Epidemiology of suicidal behavior.

Epidemiology of suicidal behavior. This paper presents the epidemiology of suicide and discusses the known risk factors for suicide within a framework designed to encourage a systematic approach to theory testing and prevention. Mental and addictive disorders are the most powerful of the multiple risk factors for suicide in all age groups. Since risk factors for suicide rarely occur in isolation, prevention efforts are more likely to succeed if multiple risk factors are targeted. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Suicide & life-threatening behavior Pubmed
