Suicide protectors

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Clinicians and researchers frequently write about risk factors for suicidal behavior, an important topic. At the same time, it is reasonable to discuss factors that improve resilience to suicide. An understanding of risk and vulnerability to suicidal behavior still outweighs our knowledge of protective factors and resilience. Knowledge of protective factors for suicide, however, may also help prevent and/or predict suicidal behavior. Because risk and protective factors are interrelated, it is necessary to discuss risk factors when we discuss suicide protectors.
