Impulsiveness and Suicide of Young Adults with Bipolar Disorder

(IRB#: IRB_00137442)

Bipolar disorder may increase suicide risk, especially in young adults. Impulsiveness and suicidal thoughts can create a higher risk and make it harder to control thoughts of suicide. Research is needed to learn how bipolar disorder may be connected to impulsiveness and suicidal thoughts. The information we gain may aid future patients.
