Description
 
A critical issue for suicide prevention is the role of substance abuse (SA) in the interplay of factors that result in a greater risk for suicidal behaviors. This report focuses on the current state of knowledge at the intersection of suicide and SA. Focuses on the epidemiology of suicide itself and presents a brief history of the growing focus on suicide as a public health issue of significant concern. Provides an overview of what we know and do not know of the impact of SA including both drugs and alcohol on suicide risk. It also acknowledges the critical interrelationships among SA, mental illness and suicide risk. Explores suicide prevention within the public health context of behavioral health promotion and illness prevention. Illustrations.
