Psychological Autopsy

Man-With-Question-Mark-2107937“Why did he/she die?”

Did you know that the World Health Organization has predicted suicide will be the second leading cause of death by the year 2020? Unfortunately, many survivors of suicide (those left behind after a loved one’s death) will never know why their loved one made this choice.  There are many questions and often, these questions will go unanswered. The psychological autopsy can help. Here, Adam will piece together what the person thought, felt and did before his/her death helping you cope and find resolution to your questions.

“What caused this person to take his/her life?”

The conclusion of the investigation is based on the information collected from personal documentation, police reports, medical and coroner’s records, and face-to-face interviews with friends and family, and others that may have been in contact with that person before their death. This has been proven to be a valuable tool for families, the legal system in cases of malpractice, coroners and insurance companies.

As of January 2014, Adam is one of 7 formally trained and certified psychological autopsy investigators by the American Association of Suicidology in the country.
