Mark William Viner, M.D., is a practicing physician working with psychiatric patients. According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 1.53 million people will die from suicide in 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.
Dr. Viner 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 can discuss the psychopharmacology of suicidality, especially in interaction with drugs that treat psychiatric disorders. He provides vivid insight into 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 from emergency rooms, hospitals, clinics, and research. Dr. Mark William Viner’s Suicide is an essential guide for recognizing the factors contributing to suicide and the people at the highest risk for suicide.
