Abstract

Risk and protective factors related to suicide can be grouped in several ways, one of which is to separate them into individual, interpersonal, and environmental factors. Such distinctions are somewhat artificial, as individual characteristics can be fully understood only as they exist and are expressed in a person's social and physical environment. However, categorizing risk and protective factors this way is useful in identifying potential solutions to the complex causes of suicidal behavior.
