Experts from all areas of mental health care address the questions of prediction and prevention of suicide in young people.
Suicide is the fourth most common cause of death in the U.S. among 10-14 year olds, third among 15-19 year olds, and second among 20-24 year olds. Experts from all areas of psychiatry, (including epidemiology, neurobiology, genetics and psychotherapy) have brought together in this volume the most recent findings in their fields to address important questions. How can these deaths be prevented? Can they be anticipated? Are there perceptible patterns? What role do families and gender play? What are the treatments for and outcomes of suicide attempters?
