Suicide Prevention Strategies: a Systematic Review
Mann J J~~Apter A~~et al.
This article examined evidence for the effectiveness of specific suicide-preventive interventions & made recommendations for future prevention programs & research. Data was extracted on primary outcomes of interest: suicidal behaviour, intermediary or secondary outcomes, or both. It was found that physician education in depression recognition & treatment & restricting access to lethal methods reduce suicide rates. Other interventions need more evidence of efficacy.
