Chapter
Suicide remains a major public health concern, with around 804,000 deaths per annum worldwide (World Health Organisation, 2014), yet our knowledge of the specific markers of risk is still relatively limited (Franklin et al., 2017). There is growing recognition that psychiatric disorders alone are insufficient to predict suicide risk, and therefore...

However, no study has investigated this relationship from an inductive, int...
