Judging the likelihood of further suicide attempts

 It is difficult to predict whether a person will attempt suicide again. Factors that should make you concerned about the risk of repeated attempts are:

• a serious, planned attempt, where there was an effort to hide the attempt from others and a dangerous method such as hanging was used;

• continued suicidal thoughts;

• hopelessness about the future;

• evidence of severe depression;

• evidence of severe life difficulties and losses;

• lack of social support;

• alcohol misuse or severe physical illness;

• previous suicide attempts;

• older age of the person attempting suicide.
