1. Bullock, Marie. Spirituality and religion in youth suicide attempters' trajectories of mental health service utilization: the year before a suicide attempt.

Degree: MS, Department of Psychiatry, 2012, McGill University

Youth suicide attempters are at high-risk for completing suicide. Many have untreated mental health problems and are not receiving services. Therefore, there is an urgent need to better understand potential influences associated with service use amongst this population. Spirituality and/or religion are potential cultural influences in all stages of youths' mental health service trajectories. This thesis explored youths' experiences of spirituality/religion as it relates to their help-seeking trajectories in the year prior to their suicide attempt. Fifteen youth (aged 14-18) who had made a suicide attempt(s) in the past 1 to 2 years were consecutively recruited through the Depressive Disorder Program of a psychiatric hospital and interviewed using open ended questions and one questionnaire. A mixed-methods design, including an adapted form of the psychological autopsy method, was used. Three themes emerged in the interviews. Religious community members acted as a bridge, step, or provider in relation to mental health services. Religious and spiritual discourses were encountered within services. Many youths reported different levels of spirituality and/or religious beliefs during the year prior to their suicide attempt. Spirituality and religion can have a role in youth suicide attempters' service trajectories. How this confers protection or challenges for each youth's trajectory needs to be clarified. Service providers need to be careful how they address these complex issues. Already, findings from the study in this thesis can inform policies in mental health services, suicide prevention and alert clinicians to suicidal youths' perspectives about spirituality and religion which may affect service utilization.

Les jeunes ayant fait une tentative de suicide sont à haut risque de s'enlever la vie par suicide. De nombreux jeunes ayant des problèmes de santé mentale ne sont pas traités pour leurs problèmes de santé mentale et ne reçoivent pas de services. Ainsi, il y a un besoin urgent de mieux comprendre les influences potentielles liées à l'utilisation de services parmi cette population. La spiritualité et/ou la religion sont des influences culturelles potentielles à tous les stades de la trajectoire de services en santé mentale des jeunes qui ont fait une tentative de suicide. Cette thèse a exploré les expériences des jeunes au niveau de la spiritualité/religion en lien avec leur trajectoire de recherche d'aide dans l'année précédant leur tentative de suicide. Quinze jeunes (âgés de 14 à 18 ans) ayant fait une tentative de suicide dans la dernière ou les deux dernières années ont été recrutés consécutivement via le Programme des Troubles Dépressifs d'un hôpital psychiatrique et ont été interviewés en utilisant des questions « ouvertes » et un questionnaire. Une approche méthodologique mixte, incluant une version adaptée de l'autopsie psychologique, a été utilisée. Trois thèmes sont ressortis des entrevues. Les membres des communautés religieuses ont permis soit de faire le pont vers les services en santé…

2. Yang, Yiling. The design of a prototype therapeutic computer training program for suicidal adolescents: a pilot project.

Degree: MS, Integrated Program in Neuroscience, 2015, McGill University

Adolescent suicide is a serious social issue, but the current health care system cannot guarantee dissemination of effective psychotherapies to everyone in need. This project is an attempt to develop a computerized therapeutic program for suicidal adolescents as a supplement to traditional psychotherapy. The program is built upon the Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and is offered after the 20-week DBT skills training to practice and reinforce the behavioral skills acquired. The exploratory development process has beheld the evolution of the program from didactic to interactive, from skills-based to story-oriented, from unrealistic 3D ambition to practical PowerPoint prototype, from common sense to scientific content, and has resulted in a basic, simple, yet feasible and clinically usable fifth version. In the pilot evaluation study, patients expressed their favor of the current version, and the results indicated a potential effectiveness in reducing dysfunctional coping behaviors, although the exact clinical efficacy remains to be validated. This project has contributed to the knowledge on how to deliver traditional treatment via computer medium, and has laid a foundation for future improvement and implementation. If the model is validated, it will have the potential to be integrated into the traditional DBT and to provide additional care and support for the adolescent patients.

Le suicide chez les adolescents est un problème social d'envergure. Malgré ceci, le système de soins et de santé actuel peut difficilement fournir de façon efficace, des services de psychothérapie pour tous ceux qui en ont besoin. Le projet actuel a pour but de développer un programme thérapeutique informatisé pour les adolescents suicidaires en tant que complément à la psychothérapie traditionnelle. Le programme est basé sur la thérapie comportementale dialectique (TCD) et il est offert suite à l'entraînement de 20 semaines de TCD afin de permettre la pratique et le renforcement des compétences comportementales qui auront été acquises. Le processus de développement exploratoire du projet a permis de passer d'un programme didactique à un programme interactif, basé sur les compétences, et fondé sur des scénarios. Il s'agit d'un programme qui aspire à utiliser des prototypes 3D, mais qui pour des raisons pratiques a été développé sur une plate-forme PowerPoint dans un premier temps. Initialement basé sur un contenu simple, le contenu scientifique a été élaboré davantage. Ceci a donc donné lieu à une cinquième version du programme qui est simple, sans artifice, prête à être utilisée cliniquement. Dans l'étude pilote d'évaluation de ce programme, les patients ont fait part de leur préférence pour la version actuelle, et les résultats ont montré une efficacité potentielle à réduire certains comportements dysfonctionnels, bien que l'efficacité clinique exacte reste à être validée. Ce projet a contribué aux connaissances sur la façon d'administrer le traitement traditionnel à l'aide d'un ordinateur, et a établi une base pour son amélioration…

3. Pinto, Rodney. Comorbid mood and substance use disorders in relation to youth suicide.

Degree: MS, Department of Psychiatry, 2010, McGill University

Research has found that 90% of those who complete suicide have a history of one or more psychiatric disorders. Mood disorders and substance use disorders (SUDs) are the key disorders related to suicide. This study not only replicates other data from previous research studies but examines other variables such as comorbid mood and SUDs associated with suicide, while also comparing different age ranges. We investigated three main domains. The first parallels work done by numerous groups comparing suicide completers to controls. The second, more novel approach, examined factors that differentiated those with MD/SUDs and those without it. The last approach, also unique to our study, focused on identifying factors associated with the two main age ranges (12-18 years old and 19-25 years old). Becoming aware of the increased risk of suicide completion within these domains can better prepare professionals when addressing treatment options.

Des recherches antérieures ont trouvé que 90% des individus décédés par suicide portent un historique d'un ou plusieurs antécédents psychiatriques. Les troubles de l'humeur ainsi que des troubles de consommation sont ceux qui sont principalement associés au suicide. La présente étude confirme les résultats mentionnés ci-haut et examine de nouvelles variables telles que la comorbidité entre les deux troubles et son association au suicide à travers divers groupes d'âge. Nous avons investigués trois domaines. Le premier présente le travail de plusieurs groupes de recherche ayant comparé le profil d'individus décédés par suicide à un groupe contrôle. Le second, abordé de façon plus novatrice, examine les facteurs qui permettent de différencier les individus souffrant d'un trouble de l'humeur ou d'un trouble de consommation à ceux qui n'en souffrent pas. Le troisième domaine exploré est aussi un qui est unique à notre étude. Par ce dernier, nous visons l'identification de facteurs associés à deux groupes d'âge spécifique, soit les 12 à 18 ans et les 19 à 25 ans. La connaissance de ces facteurs de risque permettrait aux professionnels d'être mieux équipés lorsque vient le temps d'offrir des traitements.
