Understanding Suicide Attempts

COVID-19 UPDATE:  We offer parts of the study online and safety precautions are implemented for in-person sessions.

Recent Suicide Attempts

In the past 5 years, have you made a suicide attempt, that is done something to harm yourself as a way to end your life? We invite you to participate in a research study that aims to better examine how different thoughts, behaviors, and emotions are related to decision-making and psychological symptoms. 

What does being a participant involve?

We are looking for people between the ages of 18-55 years old who would be able to come to UC Berkeley campus for up to four 2-3 hour visits. These session will include an interview where we will ask questions about your experiences of psychological symptoms, questionnaires, computer tasks, verbal tasks, and two fMRI scans (during which you will complete computer games where you can win more money).

We pay $30/hour so you can earn around $250-$300 by study completion.
