Abstract

Familial factors related to suicide can be categorized as environmental, heritable (genetic), and interactions of the two. Many familial risk and protective factors in suicide are interrelated, and it is difficult to determine whether a trait is directly associated with suicide and what proportion of that trait is heritable. Research in this area is ongoing, and knowledge is evolving rapidly.
