“Empowering communities, transforming lives.”
Dr. Abdoulaye Bah

Dr. Abdoulaye Bah is originally from Guinea, West Africa. He is Mizzou alumnus MS ’87, PhD ’93. He is married to Dr. Carolle Silney, BS ’91, MD ’97. He is a retired Professor of Sociology and former Director of the Suicide Prevention Institute at Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Missouri. He lead the team that developed several training tools geared toward addressing issues of behavioral health within the Army (Life Preservation Training course and a Peer Advising System). As a result of his work, a unique tool for raising awareness and strengthening self-efficacy, Beyond the Front, was created and adopted by the US Army. Dr. Bah is also instrumental in the development of the Life Preservation Index a risk assessment tool that can be used to identify and compute the prevalence rate of at risk individuals for suicidal behavior in a group.

Currently he spends part of his time working in Guinea for the not for profit organization he recently founded with his wife: Pathways to Health and Development. For an interesting read about his and his wife’s activities featured in MIZZOU Magazine see:
