Cognitive/Affective Mechanisms of Risk among Suicidal Adults with and without Substance Abuse

 

The way a person weighs risk and processes information may impact their suicide risk.  Cognition in adults with and without a suicide attempt will be measured at baseline and three months later to examine this relationship. Improved identification of risk and new interventions are the long-term goals.
