Research goals: To elucidate the pathophysiology of psychiatric disorders which lead to suicide, including mood disorders and schizophrenia. These studies will be conducted by the examination of genetic and transcriptional variation in patients relative to comparison groups. Through these investigations, we aim to identify novel biochemical targets for improved psychotropic medication and biological markers to facilitate diagnosis.

IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT HARMING YOURSELF OR ATTEMPTING SUICIDE:

If during office hours, call your doctor's office.

Or call 911 for emergency services.

Alternatively go to the nearest hospital emergency room.

To be connected to a trained counselor at a nearby suicide crisis center, call the toll-free, 24-
hour National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255)

Ask a family member or friend to help you make these calls or take you to the hospital.

IF YOU HAVE A FAMILY MEMBER OR FRIEND IN A CRISIS

If you have a suicidal friend or relative, do not leave him or her alone. Try to get the person to seek immediate help from an emergency room, their doctor, or a mental health professional. Please take any comments about suicide or wishing to die seriously. Even if you do not believe there will be a suicide attempt, the person is in sufficient distress to benefit from your help and from treatment by a mental health professional.

For advice, call the toll-free, 24-hour National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255)
