The Golden Gate Bridge (GGB) is a well-known Òsuicide magnetÓ and the site of approximately 30 suicides per year. Recently, a suicide barrier was approved to prevent further suicides. Cost-benefit analysis suggests that a suicide barrier on the GGB would result in a highly cost-effective reduction in suicide mortality in the San Francisco Bay Area.
