Inside the Research
Focus: Short-Term Risk
Question: Can we better understand important contributors to suicide?
Strategy: A matched sample of people with and without a recent potentially lethal suicide attempt will be compared on behavioral and neurological risk factors, and the effects of lithium on these measures will be tested.
Impact: Improved understanding of suicide and the effects of lithium on these measures will be tested.
