Cultural, Linguistic and Social considerations in making a Suicide Assessment

The suicide rates are highest among people over 85 and young people between the ages of 15-24. Drawing on the material you have been reading for weeks two and three, please discuss the questions below in terms of the cultural, linguistic and social considerations in making a suicide assessment. You should have the following three subheadings for each question: i.e., cultural considerations, linguistic considerations, social considerations. 1. Why do you think these two particular age groups are most vulnerable for suicide? Even though they are at opposite ends of the life span, do they share experiences in common? 2. What is different about these stages in a person’s life that make suicide ideation more likely? 3. What are the risk factors involved that may lead to suicide related activities and characteristics? I have included a link to Medscape that you may find helpful as you think through the answers. Class # 2: Fundamentals of Treatment Preparation through Termination.
