Mark William Viner, M.D., is a practicing physician who has been working with psychiatric patients. According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 1.53 million people will die from suicide in the year 2020, and ten to twenty times more will attempt suicide worldwide. As a board certified psychiatrist treating suicidal people in the high risk population, Mark William Viner, M.D., offers this extensively researched outline of the medical treatment of suicidality.
He begins by providing a solid foundation of neuroimaging and the neurobiological aspects of suicide. In addition to considering how psychiatric disorders can affect a suicidal patient, Viner also addresses how other general medical disorders can influence suicidality. From there, Viner is able to discuss the psychopharmacology of suicidality, especially in interaction with drugs that treat psychiatric disorders. He provides vivid insight about suicide from the psychiatrist’s point of view as he addresses social, cultural, and religious factors that contribute to suicidality in the twenty-first century. His theories and information are supplemented with real-life experiences drawn from emergency rooms, hospitals, clinics, and research. Dr. Mark William Viner’s Suicide is an important guide for recognizing the factors that contribute to suicide and the people who are at the highest risk for suicide.
