Even today, suicide is a taboo topic often discussed in whispers and swept

to the shadows of society, despite it being the leading cause of death among

youth in Utah and the tenth leading cause of death in the United States.

Researchers at the University of Utah Health are collaborating with Janssen

Research & Development to shed light on these understudied and tragic

deaths. The research will attempt to identify genetic variations associated

with an increased risk for suicide.
