Suicide is a serious problem that needs to be studied so as to best determine a source of
prevention for the numerous people groups that attempt suicide every year. The study of suicide
can be directed through many different topics and sub-topics in an attempt to gain more insight
concerning a specific faction of people. This paper will evaluate five particular topics of suicide
through which a qualified study has been completed and recorded in a professional journal of
medicine. These topics of suicide include a study focused on the old elderly, American
adolescents, South Asian women of the United Kingdom, white and black/mixed race female prisoners of the United Kingdom, and the heightened risk of suicide in patients that gain energy
while still heavily depressed.
