Life and Death Depression

A study measures the association between death and suicide to try to understand and predict suicidal behavior:

[P]articipants presenting to the emergency room after a suicide attempt had a stronger implicit association between death/ suicide and self than did participants presenting with other psychiatric emergencies. In addition, participants with strong associations between death/ suicide and self were significantly more likely to make a suicide attempt within the next six months
