Suicide is a global health concern that affects every generation However, the factors that determine why some individuals with suicidal thoughts go on to make a suicide attempt while others do not, is still not well understood. “Capability for suicide”, which is characterized by fearlessness of death and heightened pain tolerance, has been suggested to help explain a person’s transition from thought to attempt. This webinar will explore the neurobiology for suicide and its connection to physical pain processing. The goal is to find biological and behavioral markers that can help us determine who is at risk of attempt and who is in need of intervention.
