September is Suicide Awareness Month. The lab of Carlos Grilo, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry and of Psychology and Director of the Program for Obesity Weight and Eating Research (POWER), recently released three studies that documented high rates of suicide risk and attempts in people with eating disorders and borderline personality disorder.
Grilo said the research efforts are notable in that they documented elevated rates of suicide attempt in these two groups that are "understudied, underrecognized, and often stigmatized."
