The purpose of the study is to learn how we think about words related to suicide and positive and negative emotion.
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. Although there are often warning signs that you may be thinking about suicide, it is difficult to predict who will go on to attempt or die by suicide.
The purpose of this study is to help people understand more about brain activity when they have suicidal thoughts or behaviors. Researchers will study how you think about words related to positive and negative emotions.
Researchers hope their findings will lead to better ways to assess and treat individuals who experience suicidal thoughts and behaviors.
