Year: 1988 Source: Annual Meeting of the American Association of Suicidology, (21st: 1988: Washington, D.C.), p.159-160 SIEC No: 19890165

In this session, Soubrier discussed a number of presentations he has done on the consequences of publishing suicide manuals. He argues that since the early 1980s suicide statistics have shown an incredible increase in France & attributes this to a lack to legislation concerning the provocation or incitement of suicide. However, in December 1987 a new law was passed which addresses this issue. Soubrier says that this law in itself is not sufficient unless prevention programs are also supported.
