  • Research - personality traits and suicidality


Personality traits and suicidality

A team of researchers are interested in the personality styles in adults who have previously attempted suicide. Previous research has shown that adults with a diagnosis of autism are at higher risk of suicidal thoughts, plans, and attempts.

Researchers are interested to find out whether personality styles that are associated with autism are also related to the likelihood of experiencing suicidality.
