Towards evidence-based suicide prevention programs.
In our daily lives, stopping people from reaching the edge of a cliff is always easier than trying to save once theyÕre on the edge. In the same sense, drug-clot busters might be useful in providing temporary relief for those who suffer from cardiovascular diseases, but this is not as cost-efficient or cost-effective as a healthy diet and routine exercise for the population as a whole. The public-health approach to suicide prevention shares the same vision. Aiming to prevent illness, disability, and premature death through early and active intervention, this approach provides a strong framework for creating an effective and concerted effort across different sectors to prevent suicide.
