BALTAR, Juliana Gomes da Cunha; IGLESIAS, Alexandra  e  BORLOTI, Elizeu Batista. Comorbidity between the use of alcohol and other substances, psychiatric disorders and suicide behavior: a review. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2020, vol.12, n.2, pp. 3-18. ISSN 2177-093X.

Studies and government data point out a possible association between the abuse of alcohol and other substances and suicidal behavior, with a consequent impact on various fields, such as the economic field and public health. Facing this situation, this article aims to describe this comorbidity the way it is described in the current bibliography, in order to point out relevant aspects for its prevention. For this purpose, an advanced search was conducted on the CAPES's scientific paper directory from which 17 articles were selected and grouped into five themes. In short, the reviewed studies demonstrated the caution of marking suicide risk subgroups among psychoactive substance users, which constitute a target group for preventive interventions of aggravations and promotion of health.
