Serotonin and dopamine are two monoamines which are known to interact with each other. Their role for suicidal behaviour, aggression and mood are reviewed in this chapter. We found a substantial amount of evidence for the relevance of a serotonin and dopamine model of aggression, and for aggression as a major risk factor for suicide. Evidence was found that serotonin and dopamine also may be involved in depressed mood, and possibly the individual's ability to cope with imminent suicidality.
