Suicidality: A Roadmap for Assessment and Treatment


Suicidality: A Roadmap for Assessment and Treatment

Written by David V. Sheehan MD, MBA and Jennifer M. Giddens


The search for and development of medications to specifically treat suicidality has lagged behind other major public health conditions. Yet suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the USA and the 15th leading cause of death worldwide. Clinicians and researchers become alarmed when patients discuss suicidality. As a consequence, suicidal individuals are routinely excluded from clinical research studies. There are ethical, institutional, and funding barriers to pursuing research on suicidality. This book lays the foundations for the scientific search and investigation of anti-suicidality medications. We offer new models to more accurately understand and assess suicidality and propose a roadmap to initiate the search for new specific treatments.
