Suicide is the primary cause of preventable death in the United States.  Next to depression and mood disorders, alcohol/drug abuse is the 2nd most significant risk factor for suicide.  This presentation will explore the relationship between substance use disorders and suicide, addressing the potential causes of this relationship and reviewing and interpreting recent research.  By understanding why these two phenomena are related, we can begin to understand how to intervene and provide support for those who are struggling, as well as their families.
