Introduction[edit]

the introductory paragraphy, which refers to the research/recommendations of an individual author (Cutliffe) needs to be re-written in the interest of objectivity-- unless Cutliffe is the pre-eminent authority on all things related to suicide risk assessment, in which case that needs to be stated. while this style of writing is considered appropriate in most kinds of academic writing, it is not appropriate for intro to enclyopedia article.

Please update your references as they are incomplete/incorrect. You have many cases where you have specified the author and year but nothing else. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.8.112.78 (talk) 15:29, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

I've made minor grammatical changes throughout your article that needed to be fixed. Additionally, I think that some of your section could use a significant amount of work such as: martial status, sexual orientation, suicidal ideation, motivation to die, reasons to live, and sex. You've clearly established a solid amount of detail for the remaining areas but these, in particular, might have a little more informative data behind them. Other than that, this article appears sound and neatly constructed. Keep up the good work! DavidlawsonND (talk) 23:48, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
