New ARCH Lab Research

Dr. Ferro and colleagues at the Offord Centre for Child Studies recently published a paper in the Canadian Journal of Psychiatry entitled, “Suicidal behaviour among adolescents and young adults with self-reported chronic illness”. The paper showed that individuals with a chronic illness were more likely to experience suicidal thoughts, plans, or attempts. Additionally, findings showed that adolescents and young adults with a chronic illness and comorbid psychiatric disorder (mood or substance use disorder) were at increased odds of reporting suicidal thoughts.
