Personalized assessment of daily experiences
The purpose of this voluntary research study is to understand how experiences that might change moment-to-moment influence suicidal thoughts and behaviors for individual people. In other words, the purpose of this research is to understand how much the experiences that lead to suicidal thoughts and behaviors might differ from person to person. This research includes people living in rural areas of the United States because people living in rural areas are not often represented in suicide research, even though suicidal thoughts and behaviors are important issues for people in rural communities. We want to make sure that we understand how suicidal thoughts and behaviors might develop specifically for individual people living in rural areas. We also want to understand how suicidal thoughts and behaviors develop specifically for LGBTQIA+ people who live in rural areas.
