Default Suicidal Risk

A 77-year-old Caucasian man presents with a chief complaint of fatigue for the last several months. During the course of the interview, his physician discovers that the man was widowed seven months ago and has felt depressed ever since. His daughter and her family live in close proximity and have been trying to persuade him to move in with them. He is hesitant to do so, especially since he has become accustomed to drinking "quite a few" shots of whiskey daily since his wife died. Which of the following factors decreases this man's risk for successful suicide completion?

A. Age
B. Alcohol consumption
C. Male sex
D. Adequate social support
E. White race
