This article discusses Alberta’s suicide prevention program, including the resource library/database of the Suicide Information & Education Centre (SIEC). Unfortunately, the province is still encountering the problem of the reluctance of physicians to get involved with suicidal patients. Few physicians, for example, have attended Alberta’s 2-day Suicide Prevention Training Program. The program is briefly outlined. The resources of SIEC, & the risk of suicide for doctors are also discussed. (VM)
