About this Project:
Recent research has recognized domestic abuse as a significant risk factor for suicide. However, the intricate relationship between gender, domestic abuse, and suicidality still lacks comprehensive understanding (Agenda Alliance, 2023). Studies suggest that suicide risk amongst women experiencing domestic abuse is influenced by various factors, such as distress, hopelessness, PTSD, and substance abuse. Social support is believed to moderate these effects (Bergman and Brismar, 1991; Kaslow et al., 1998; Thompson et al., 1999). Nonetheless, the precise dynamics of these precarious and protective elements remain insufficiently explored.
To address these gaps, this project will adopt an intersectional and social justice framework, examining the interplay between suicide and domestic abuse within the context of multiple disadvantages, including economic insecurity and poverty. Utilizing a strengths-based approach, the study will collaborate closely with partners and individuals with Lived Experience, leading to an authentic co-constructed research design with tangible real-world impact.
