PSYCH 515 Week 3 DQ 4
Suicide Warning Signs
Suicide and various forms of self-harm can be an unfortunate outcome for some individuals with Mood Disorders. I encourage you to become familiar with Suicidology.org, an excellent professional resource, and an organization that was founded by famed suicide researcher/psychologist Edwin Schneidman, Ph.D. Because of the severity of Bipolar and other Mood Disorders, clinicians are advised to be knowledgeable about suicide risk factors. One of my depressed clients once told me that he owned a gun, which caught my attention during the clinical assessment interview.
