When are youth at greatest risk for suicide?
One of the most important clinical questions remains: Will this at-risk adolescent attempt suicide today or tomorrow? Unfortunately, we know very little about when youth are at greatest risk for engaging in suicidal behavior. Our ongoing research aims to identify short-term risk factors among youth after discharge from psychiatric hospitalization—a high-risk time period.
