Suicide is a pressing international health problem, yet its breadth remains unacknowledged. The principal purpose of Suicide Science is to expand the boundaries of suicide research, by focusing on fresh approaches to the problems as well as on emerging areas of research emphasis. Expert contributors from related fields of study each lend a unique and meaningful perspective to suicidology. The end result is an important work which will prove invaluable to clinicians and researchers grappling with this vexing public health issue.Table of contents List of Figures. List of Tables.
