Parents' Divorce May Contribute to Suicidal Thoughts Years Later

The association between parental divorce and suicidal thoughts in men was unexpectedly strong, even when we adjusted for other childhood and adult stressors, socioeconomic status, depression and anxiety," lead author Esme Fuller-Thomson, of the faculty of social work and department of family and community medicine, said in a university news release.
