The Laboratory for the Study and Prevention of Suicide-Related Conditions and Behaviors at Florida State University focuses primarily on the study of the nature, causes, and management of suicidal behavior and related disorders (e.g., eating disorders, mood disorders, personality disorders). The goal of our research is to further refine and empirically test the interpersonal theory of suicide, as well as understand and prevent suicidal behavior in military and other settings.
