Suicide Risk in Uncertain Times
In his theory of suicidal behavior, Thomas Joiner proposes three factors that mark those most at risk of death: the feeling of being a burden on loved ones; the sense of isolation; and, perhaps chillingly, the learned ability to hurt oneself. He tests the theory against diverse facts taken from clinical anecdotes and research, uses the model to understand risk and protection during a pandemic, and draws out the model's implications for risk assessment and mitigation.

Learning Objectives:
- to review basic facts about the epidemiology and risk factors for death by suicide, including under a pandemic.
- to learn about a theory of suicidal behavior.
- to learn about approaches to suicide risk assessment and mitigation.
