Association between greenspace exposure and suicide-related outcomes across the lifespan: A systematic review

A growing number of studies have linked greenspace exposure to suicide, but findings are inconsistent. We conducted a systematic review on the associations between greenspace exposure and suicide-related outcomes (namely, suicide mortality, self-harm, and suicidal ideation) up until January 6, 2023. We used the Mixed Methods Appraisal Tool (or MMAT) to assess the quality of […]

Objectives Very little research has examined suicidal ideation or the factors associated with contemplating suicide among older transgender adults. This paper examines whether or not there is evidence of syndemic effects influencing suicidal ideation among transgender persons aged 50 or older. Methods Data from the 2015 U.S. National Transgender Survey were used to examine five domains […]

Understanding suicidal transitions in Australian adults: Protocol for the LifeTrack prospective longitudinal cohort study

Background The factors that influence transition from suicidal ideation to a suicide attempt or remission of suicidal thoughts are poorly understood. Despite an abundance of research on risk factors for suicidal ideation, no large-scale longitudinal population-based studies have specifically recruited people with suicidal ideation to examine the mechanisms underlying critical transitions to either suicide attempt […]

Incidence of suicidal ideation and suicide attempt based on time in a deployed environment

Introduction: Knowing when suicidal ideation (SI) or suicide attempt (SA) is most likely to occur in a deployed environment would aid in focusing prevention efforts. This study aims to determine when evacuation for SA and SI is most likely to occur based on the absolute and relative number of months in a deployed setting. Materials and […]

Exploration of related factors of suicide ideation in hospitalized older adults

Background With the rapid aging of the population structure, and the suicide ideation rate also increasing year by year, the ratio of people over 65 to the total number of deaths is increasing yearly. The study provides a reference for researchers interested in older adults’ care to explore SI further affecting older adults in the […]

The mental “weight” of discrimination: The relationship between perceived interpersonal weight discrimination and suicidality in the United States

Extant research has investigated the relationship between body weight and suicidality because obesity is highly stigmatized, leading to social marginalization and discrimination, yet has produced mixed results. Scholars have speculated that factors associated with body weight, such as weight discrimination, may better predict suicidality than body weight itself. We consider this possibility among a sample […]

Transition to a first suicide attempt among young and middle-aged males with a history of suicidal thoughts: A two-year cohort study

Introduction Although many studies have examined the risk and protective factors associated with suicidal behavior, little is known about the probability of transition from suicidal thoughts to suicidal attempts and the factors that distinguish those who have suicidal thoughts from those who progress to a suicide attempt. Objectives To determine the probability and predictors of […]

Suicide-focused group therapy: A scoping review

Background: Although there are several studies focusing on group models for therapy specific to suicidal thoughts and behaviors, scoping reviews providing an overview of these studies’ findings are limited. Aims: The aim of this paper was to conduct a scoping review of group therapies that explicitly target suicidal thoughts and behaviors (i.e., suicide-focused) for adults and their suicide-related […]

Association of interleukin-6 with suicidal ideation in veterans: A longitudinal perspective

Introduction: Studies showing associations between inflammation in suicide are typically cross-sectional. Present study investigated how cytokine levels track with suicidal ideation and severity longitudinally. Methods: Veterans with a diagnosis of major depressive disorder (MDD) with or without suicide attempt history (MDD/SA n = 38, MDD/NS n = 41) and non-psychiatric non-attempter controls (HC n = 33) were recruited, MDD/SA and HC groups were followed longitudinally at […]

Correlations between negative life events and suicidal ideation among Chinese adolescents: A meta-analysis

Background: Suicide ideation (SI) has become a serious social issue worldwide, and research has found a certain correlation between negative life events (NLE) and SI. Nevertheless, this relationship is still not clear among Chinese adolescents, a special population. Hence, this investigation performed a meta-analysis of observational research on the correlation between NLE and SI among adolescents […]

Factors related to suicidal ideation in adolescents according to types of stress

Background: This study aimed to identify the factors associated with suicidal ideation by classifying adolescents into three groups: no stress, interpersonal stress, as well as academic and career stress. Method: Using the data from the 16th Korea Youth Risk Behavior Web-Based Survey (2020), 15,343 adolescents were included in the study, and their socio-demographic characteristics as well […]

Monitoring and responding to signals of suicidal ideation in pragmatic clinical trials: Lessons from the GRACE trial for Chronic Sickle Cell Disease Pain

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a hemoglobin disorder and the most common genetic disorder that affects 100,000 Americans and millions worldwide.
