Abstract: This presentation discusses dissolved lithium concentrations and the spatial distribution of suicide mortality rates in Texas counties, from 1980-1998. The results suggest that counties with lower dissolved lithium concentrations in their groundwater had significantly higher suicide mortality rates. Counties with higher populations of Whites had significantly higher suicide mortality rates, but counties with higher populations of Hispanics had significantly lower suicide mortality rates. Males had higher suicide mortality rates than females. Further research into the relationship between lithium concentrations and suicide is warranted.
