OUR LABORATORY INFORMS ABOUT SUICIDE PREVENTION

Suicide is complex and tragic, but it can be prevented. Mental health problems are among the most significant risk factors. Our research laboratory is committed to generating knowledge to inform suicide prevention and mental health promotion efforts.

OUR GOALS

    • Examine, from a developmental epidemiological perspective, individual, community, societal and intergenerational influences related to suicide.
    • Design and evaluate the effectiveness of innovative interventions to prevent suicide and promote mental health.
    • Disseminate and apply scientific knowledge in the field of suicide prevention.
