Abstract

Individual differences in personality play a significant role in the development of alcohol-related problems. Alcohol and other substance abuse disorders are known to be linked to suicide attempts and completions. This chapter will discuss both externalizing and internalizing pathways to alcohol-related problems in emerging adulthood as well as illustrate possible links to these mechanisms to suicide attempts. In the internalizing pathway to alcohol-related problems which may lead to suicide attempts, we will discuss one contributing mechanism, neuroticism, and one potentially protective mechanism, obsessive compulsive disorder. In the externalizing pathway to alcohol-related problems, we will explore antisocial personality disorder as a contributing mechanism to alcohol use, alcohol-related problems, suicide attempts, and suicide completions.
