Alcohol Prevention is Suicide Prevention: Understanding the Associations Between Alcohol and Suicide

May 5, 2021 | 10 am - 11 am

Heavy episodic (or “binge” drinking) is associated with higher reports of suicidal thoughts, making a suicide plan, and attempting suicide.  Research has looked at distal risk factors (relatively stable characteristics/events leading up to suicidal behavior) and proximal risk factors (variables that increase risk in the moments before suicidal behavior).  In this presentation, these factors will be reviewed, with a spotlight on how alcohol impacts judgment and decision making directly related to suicide.  Studies that make the assertion that “alcohol prevention is suicide prevention” will be summarized, along with other associated variables.  Implications for prevention and intervention will be discussed.

Speaker: Jason R. Kilmer, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington
