Summary

Suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people and the 11th leading cause of death for people of all ages. Family conflicts, legal or work problems, difficulty in school or social situations, and other stressful life events can all contribute to someone's choice to commit suicide. Physical or mental illnesses can also be significant factors. But the reasons behind suicide never justify the act. With treatment and help, allthese problems can be faced and overcome. Suicide explores the root causes of suicidal behavior, how to recognize it, and how those at risk can be aided.

Chapters include:

  • Suicide Case Studies
  • Impulses, Emotions, and Suicide
  • Anxiety and Suicide
  • Mood Disorders and Suicide
  • Suicide and Feeling "Different" in Teens
  • Suicide

About the Author(s)

Ron Salomon, MD majored in life sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and completed his medical education at the University of Liège in Belgium. He completed a residency in psychiatry at the University of Connecticut in Farmington, and then joined a depression research group at Yale University. For more than 10 years he has been on the faculty at Vanderbilt University where he teaches and practices psychiatry. Dr. Salomon also conducts research on brain activity in depression and suicidal states. His research uses mathematical modeling to study the ability of the normal brain to change its working patterns over time in order to understand what causes this ability to be decreased in depression. He has received research support from, and is very indebted to, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Alliance for Research in Schizophrenia and Affective Disorders (NARSAD), the Stanley Medical Research Institute (SMRI), and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). He serves on national grant review committees and as a peer reviewer for national and international journals. To prevent any possible misunderstandings regarding conflicts of interest, Dr. Salomon discloses that over the past decades he has received research support from the pharmaceutical companies Janssen (Johnson & Johnson), Merck, and Pfizer and has coordinated research sites for Eli Lilly and Co., Merck, Organon, Pfizer, and Sanofi-Aventis. He serves on the speakers’ bureau for AstraZeneca, Inc.

Christine Adamec has authored and coauthored many books for Facts On File, including The Encyclopedia of Cancer and Cancer Medicine (2019), The Encyclopedia of Infectious Diseases (2020), and numerous other titles on pivotal medical and psychological issues.

Foreword author Pat Levitt, Ph.D., is the director of the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Research on Human Development.
