The Suicide and
Depression Research Program aims broadly to investigate depression,
suicide ideation, and life threatening behavior. This research is
being conducted by Kelly C. Cukrowicz, Ph.D. and colleagues in an
effort to better understand the reasons for the high rate of suicide
among older adult, Caucasian males. In particular, our research
group will be conducting research on how relationships and emotions
impact these problems. In the future we hope to utilize this
information to improve prevention and treatment strategies that will
help save lives.
An overview of
the research being conducted by this research group is available
