Example citation

Suicidal ideation tends to be episodic, with quick onset and short duration

Key takeaways

  • This is a review of the EMA-field in suicide
  • Those who receive EMA prompts do not seem to reduce or trigger suicidal ideation (ref 8)
  • The findings around affective states and later suicidal ideation are mixed.
    • Correlates of ideation vs predictors of ideation vs predictors of change in ideation

What’s needed from future research?

  • Larger, longer studies
  • Studies conducted rugin critical high-risk periods (for example, during the month after discharge)
  • Use of passive data from smartphones and wearables
