Grabenhofer-Efferth, A., Gaiswinkler, S., GRuber, B., Ladurner, J., & Pichler, M.
This handbook summarises the experience gathered in Austria between 2012 and 2022 with implementing the national suicide prevention programme SUPRA. Its aim is to provide guidance to other countries, partners of the Joint Action ImpleMENTAL work package 6, for developing or scaling up a suicide prevention strategy at national/regional level. It introduces the WHO-framework (based on various WHO-reports) and illustrates how it served as a key reference and provided crucial guidance for Austria. Lessons learned in Austria are shared, based not only on the experience of implementing SUPRA, but also on the experience of implementing other national strategies (related to topics other than suicide prevention).
