Surgeon General's Call to Action to Prevent Suicide by Lucy Davidson( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1996, suicide was the ninth leading cause of death in the United States. The nation must address how to develop and implement a national strategy for suicide prevention to achieve a significant and measurable reduction in suicidal behaviors. A national conference on suicide prevention brought together policymakers, health and mental health clinicians, community leaders, and suicide survivors. This call for action offers a blueprint for addressing suicide: Awareness, Intervention, and Methodology (aim), an approach derived from the collaborative deliberations of the conference participants. Aim presents 15 recommendations refined from consensus and evidence-based findings. Recognizing that mental and substance abuse disorders confer the greatest risk for suicidal behavior, these recommendations suggest an approach to the problem of unrecognized and untreated mental health and substance abuse problems, particularly in adolescents and the elderly. Working together locally and at the national level to complete and implement a national strategy for suicide prevention is an important step in responding to this public health problem.

The Health Status of Elderly Persons in the Last Year of Life: A Comparison of Deaths by Suicide, Injury, and Natural Causes by Linda Grabbe( )

1 edition published in 1997 in Undetermined and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

OBJECTIVES: This study identified health status variables related to suicide by elderly persons and compared the health status of suicide decedents with natural death and injury decedents. METHODS: Data were obtained from the 1986 National Mortality Followback Survey. RESULTS: When other variables were controlled for, suicide decedents were significantly more likely than injury decedents to have a history of cancer (odds ratio [OR] = 51.94), moderate (OR = 29.37) or heavy (OR = 22.87) alcohol use, and mental or emotional disorder (OR = 10.91) and to be White (OR = 18.54) and male (OR = 9.12). CONCLUSIONS: The findings indicate that a history of cancer should be considered as a risk for suicide in the elderly
