Drawing on service user data, this book contains & explains an evidence-based theory of how to care for suicidal people. In addition to tracing the role of nurses, the authors use their findings to launch into formal level issues regarding future research, education and policy, as well as focusing on the ethical issues involved in the care of the suicidal person. The book closes with a chapter on bereavement after suicide.
