This presentation discussed a research study which explored the factors contributing to the increase in the use of motor vehicle exhaust as method of suicide. Psychological profiles, factors influencing method choice, & circumstances of the act of self-harm were examined in a group of suicide attempt survivors. Psychological circumstances were examined at 2-year follow-up. Results indicated this method to be highly acceptable & accessible emphasizing the urgent need for reduction of access to this means of suicide in Australia.
