Prevalence of and risk factors for lifetime suicide attempts in the National Comorbidity Survey.
TLDR
All significant risk factors were more strongly related to ideation than to progression from ideation to a plan or an attempt, and prevention efforts should focus on planned attempts because of the rapid onset and unpredictability of unplanned attempts.
Cross-national prevalence and risk factors for suicidal ideation, plans and attempts
TLDR
There is cross-national variability in the prevalence of suicidal behaviours, but strong consistency in the characteristics and risk factors for these behaviours.
Suicide and suicidal behavior.
TLDR
Examination of prevalence of, trends in, and risk and protective factors for suicidal behavior in the United States and cross-nationally revealed significant cross-national variability in the prevalence of suicidal behavior but consistency in age of onset, transition probabilities, and key risk factors.
Prevalence, severity, and unmet need for treatment of mental disorders in the World Health Organization World Mental Health Surveys.
TLDR
Reallocation of treatment resources could substantially decrease the problem of unmet need for treatment of mental disorders among serious cases and careful consideration needs to be given to the value of treating some mild cases, especially those at risk for progressing to more serious disorders.
Trends in suicide ideation, plans, gestures, and attempts in the United States, 1990-1992 to 2001-2003.
TLDR
Despite a dramatic increase in treatment, no significant decrease occurred in suicidal thoughts, plans, gestures, or attempts in the United States during the 1990s.
The relation between different dimensions of alcohol consumption and burden of disease: an overview.
TLDR
Findings indicate that alcohol impacts many disease outcomes causally, both chronic and acute, and injuries, and a pattern of heavy episodic drinking increases risk for some disease and all injury outcomes.
Twelve-month prevalence of and risk factors for suicide attempts in the World Health Organization World Mental Health Surveys.
TLDR
An analysis of a large cross-national epidemiologic survey database that estimates the 12-month prevalence of suicidal behaviors, identifies risk factors for suicide attempts, and combines these factors to create a risk index for 12- month suicide attempts separately for developed and developing countries finds risk indices can predict suicide attempts with fairly good accuracy.
