Abstract

One obstacle that may hinder suicide research is the assumption that asking about suicide may make individuals more likely to engage in suicidal thoughts or behaviours. However, decisions that are overly restrictive when approving research proposals may hinder important research. The present thesis aims to provide a stronger evidence basis on the benefits and risks of the effects of exposure to suicide content on research participants. The current findings suggest that participation in suicide research is associated with significant benefits for participants. These findings can be used to inform ethical decision making associated with the management of suicide research.
