Development of a Positive Psychology Intervention to Reduce Suicide Risk
Positive psychology offers mental exercises to help deal with suicidal ideation and behavior. A 6-week add-on intervention to help people hospitalized for depression and suicidal ideation or attempts will be tested. If effective, these simple self-directed actions could be used as tools for helping people through difficult moments.
