Suicide and Risk Factors
Here are several resources regarding Suicide Risk Factors and Suicide Risk Assessment.
Joanna Briggs Institute (best practices and evidence-based)
World Health Organization's Preventing suicide: A global imperative: Every 40 seconds a person dies by suicide somewhere in the world. “Preventing suicide: a global imperative” is the first WHO report of its kind. It aims to increase awareness of the public health significance of suicide and suicide attempts, to make suicide prevention a higher priority on the global public health agenda, and to encourage and support countries to develop or strengthen comprehensive suicide prevention strategies in a multisectoral public health approach
CDC's Suicide: Risk and Protective Factors: A combination of individual, relational, community, and societal factors contribute to the risk of suicide. Risk factors are those characteristics associated with sucide--they might not be direct causes.
