Abstract (Summary)

The present study utilized a content analysis method to review 25 research articles relating to suicide. The study sought to identify factors associated with suicide risk, considerations for effective screening and assessment strategies, and effective treatment strategies. Literature gathered for the study was obtained through research databases, consisted of qualitative and quantitative research methods, and were focused on the topic of suicide. It was found that various risk factors such as career, relationships, and exposure to suicide, among others, had significant relationships to suicide risk. The effectiveness of screening and assessment were based on relationships with service providers, and the appropriateness of a tool with the population being served. Intervention strategies teaching coping skills decreased suicide risk.
