Moving Beyond the Fear of Death: Suicide Capacity Within the Ideation-to-Action Framework
Suicide attempts result in serious consequences for the individual, their family and friends, and society. A core facilitator for the transition from suicidal ideation to suicide attempt is the individual’s capacity for suicide. Suicide capacity is a universal concept that can be adapted for specific populations. This program of research will strengthen the knowledge base about the movement from ideation-to-action by first scoping the literature and then utilising the lived experiences of suicide attempt survivors to gain new knowledge about factors of suicide capacity. It is anticipated that this new co-created knowledge will be formative for the theoretical development and scientific advancement of suicide capacity. This can then inform development of more precise preventative strategies aimed at reducing suicide attempts.
