It is estimated that at least one million people die by suicide every year, showing the importance of suicide prevention and detection. An autoencoder and machine learning model was employed to predict people with suicidal ideation based on their brain structural imaging. Our results showed that the best pattern of structure across multiple brain locations can classify suicidal ideates from NS and HC with a prediction accuracy of 85%, a specificity of 100% and a sensitivity of 75%. The algorithms developed here might provide an objective tool to help identify suicidal ideation risk among depressed patients alongside clinical assessment.
