This article provides background information on the development & organization of the WHO/EURO multicentre study, & presents selected findings from the epidemiological monitoring project based on data collected in 15 centres during the year 1989. The authors warn against generalizing from their findings to make statements about differences in parasuicide between countries, but they also argue that the differences between centres are valid & should be addressed in further research.
