According to the WHO, hundreds of thousands of people die every year from suicide, constituting a major cause of death especially in the adolescent and young adult population. Several risk factors have been associated with suicide and these vary according to the sex and age of the population. Furthermore, the method in which suicide is attempted or committed varies according to the population. Statistically based evidence shows that men typically use violent methods, whereas women use less traumatic methods.
The purpose of this special issue is therefore to characterize gender differences in suicidal events by examining specific forensic evidence in terms of behavioral and injury patterns.
This special issue aims to address gender differences in suicide in the following areas:
- Epidemiology of suicide
- Risk factors for suicide
- Neurobiology of suicide
- Crime scene investigation
- Criminology of suicide
- Suicide method
- Injury pattern (external and internal) of suicide
