  1. Depression, other mental disorders, or substance use disorder

  2. Chronic pain

  3. A history of suicide attempts

  4. Family history of a mental disorder or substance use

  5. Family history of suicide

  6. Exposure to family violence, including physical or sexual abuse

  7. Presence of guns or other firearms in the home

  8. Having recently been released from prison or jail

  9. Exposure, either directly or indirectly, to others' suicidal behavior, such as that of family members, peers, or celebrities
