Medical Conditions Associated with Suicide Risk: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Suicide by Dr. Alan L. Berman

The link between COPD and suicide is not a direct one, conclude the authors of this ebook, however, they provide a thorough review of the literature on the factors and chronic conditions that could elevate suicide risk among people with COPD. The authors explore the biopsychosocial surround for individuals with COPD and how these risk factors are related to mental health status. There is a discussion of current standard of care guidelines, a comprehensive review of screening tools, and other practical recommendations for clinicians and caregivers.
