Self-reported intentions involved in parasuicide were studied using information obtained from 1,464 patients in countries participating in the WHO/EURO Multicentre Study on Suicidal Behaviour. A total of 13 countries were involved: Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Hungary, Slovenia, & Italy. The main finding of the study was that parasuicide patients in different countries tend to indicate similar intentions in acts of parasuicide, which do not vary greatly with gender or age. (29 refs)
