There are many different fields and disciplines involved with Suicidology, the two primary ones being psychology and sociology. Suicidology studies not only successful suicide and attempted suicide but also partial self-destruction, suicidal ideation, parasuicide, and self-destructive behaviors and attitudes. Beyond just direct interventions to stop an impending suicide, Suicidology methods also involve a) treating the psychological and psychophysiological symptoms of depression, b) improving the coping strategies of persons who would otherwise seriously consider suicide, c) reducing the prevalence of conditions believed to constitute risk factors for suicide, and d) giving people hope for a better life after current problems are resolved.
