Academic Psychiatry requests papers on suicide prevention and intervention training for medical students, residents, and fellows. Despite the serious public health impact and life-threatening nature of illnesses and conditions associated with suicide, they have received little attention in society and are poorly understood and profoundly stigmatized. Learning to understand and evaluate people at risk for self-harm is an important element of medical student and resident education. New evidence-based models for prevention of suicide are emerging, and these new models have inspired optimism. Integrating these new models is an exciting challenge for medical educators. We are working with the Kubly Foundation to create a special issue of articles that support the development of novel curricula and innovative teaching in the important area of suicide prevention, evaluation, and intervention.
