American Association of Suicidology

Barbara L. Drew, Ph.D., RN, PMHCNS-BC

My research interest has been driven by my clinical experience working with people who are suicidal. I felt compelled to explore how suicide can be prevented. I have studied the use of no-suicide/no-harm contracts, the experience of suicidal people who come to emergency departments, how adolescents and young adults manage their symptoms of depression and suicidality, and predictors of suicidal ideation in Thai women.
