The pursuit of death versus escape from negative affect: An examination of the nature of the relationship between emotion dysregulation and both suicidal behavior and non-suicidal self-injury

Across three studies, we tested a model in which the relationship between emotion dysregulation and suicidal behavior is accounted for by non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI). Whereas some models posit that suicide attempts serve as an escape from acute aversive states, our model proposes that NSSI accounts for the relationship between emotion dysregulation and suicide attempts. To test our model, we recruited two large nonclinical samples of adults and a clinical sample of adults seeking inpatient treatment for substance use disorders.

Adolescents at risk for suicide are highly heterogeneous in terms of psychiatric and social risk factors, yet there has been little systematic research on risk profiles, which would facilitate recognition and the matching of patients to services. Our primary study aims were to identify latent class profiles of adolescents with elevated suicide risk, and to examine the association of these profiles with mental health service use (MHSU).
