Global suicide mortality rates: A light at the end of the tunnel?
Bertolote, J.M. & De Leo, D.
In 1999, as part of the efforts to raise awareness about the magnitude and importance of suicide mortality, the World Health Organization (WHO) posted two graphs on its website. One showed the evolution of the global suicide mortality, 1950–1995, according to sex, and the other showed a projection about how those rates could evolve should no effective action be taken (Figure 1 ).
