However, their efficacy in suicidal behaviours and mechanisms for it remain a topic of debate.Recent FindingsSubanesthetic ketamine doses rapidly, albeit transiently decrease suicidal ideation, with effects emerging within an hour and persisting up to a week. Current evidence points to various and not necessarily exclusive ...

The headline in a main Finnish newspaper on 16 November announced: “Trust and interest for published science has increased in Finland”. I would have hypothesized that evidence-based knowledge was losing the game against the rush of non-scientific and commercial information – but I was wrong. A 3-year follow-up survey among the Finland population was clear on this. Could the growth in electronic and social media information actually be causing people to search for knowledge based on scientific facts? Forty-five years have passed since the publication of the first issue of the Scandinavian Journal of Work...

This is not new news, but it's strong confirmation of earlier observations that have been somewhat controversial, and also bad news that the trend is continuing.That trend is declining life expectancy in the U.S. I'm not linking to the full report in JAMA because it's incredibly wonky and behind a paywall anyway, but rather to the associated editorial, which tells you what you need to know.Before we get into the substance of this, let me explain the concept of life expectancy.

Suicide crosses all boundaries: age, race, gender, economic and social. No one is immune. Sometimes, there are no warning signs. Often, families have tried for years to get help. But suicide also can be an impulsive action, influenced by substance abuse or extreme stress.

They may have set boundaries or ...
