Center for the Study and Prevention of Suicide (CSPS) investigators study suicide prevention across the lifespan and in diverse service settings. CSPS investigators conduct observational research designed to understand why and when individuals are at risk for suicide ideation, attempts, and deaths. Our investigators develop interventions and conduct clinical trials to study how those interventions reduce risk, across the spectrum of prevention, from universal to selective to indicated prevention.

Below, we invite you to learn more about our current and past work, with examples highlighting several areas of CSPS expertise.
