This book presents a new approach to the study of suicide using the latest research in the field. It covers many aspects: statistics of suicide; reviews of current psychiatric diagnostic tools; discussion of the most accepted current theories and models of suicide; an explanation of a psychiatric emergency and suicide risk assessment; the author’s neuropsychological brain theory is presented in everyday language; once the normal functions of the brain are understood, mental disorders are explained; and, ultimately, it becomes clear how, under certain conditions, these disorders can lead to suicide; this is the key to understanding suicide. Opinions of various experts on suicide are compared; advice on therapies is offered. Using the insights presented, important suggestions to prevent suicide and lessen suicide rates at various levels (the individual, the small community, or the military) are proposed. The book closes with a chapter devoted to the grief specifics for survivors of suicide.
