Abstract/OtherAbstract:
High risk suicide factors both in India and in the United States are examined. In India these are: humiliation, reputational and economic loss, poverty, examination failure, relationship disappointments, disputes with spouse and inlaws, property disputes, loss of loved one, and chronic medical illnesses. In the United States major depressions, schizophrenia, alcoholism, recent loss(es), retirement, limited social support system, age over 45 and high risk low rescue situations are significant. Most of high risk suicide factors in India apparently are related to interpersonal and socioeconomic causes, whereas in the United States these relate to individual and psychiatric causes. These interesting differences are discussed.
