Project

Are there dietary and lifestyle factors for the self-prevention of suicide? - project description

Published Updated

The objective of this project is to examine if dietary and lifestyle factors have a role in suicide prevention.


Summary

Suicidality falls into a spectrum ranging from thoughts, plans, actions, and completion. Dividing suicide risks into segments across the lifespan allows for programming that nurtures protective factors and manages risks. Habits that tend to be initiated around adolescence such as smoking and alcohol drinking may be modifiable risks. Smoking, alcohol drinking, cholesterol, and vitamin D status are all modifiable risks. The objective of this project is to examine if these dietary and lifestyle factors have a role in suicide prevention.
