  1. Prevention of suicide : aspirations and evidence.

    Article - En anglais

    The Health of the Nation white paper set a target for 15% reduction in overall suicide rates by the year 2000.

    If the targets are to be achieved interventions must be identified which are of proved effectiveness.

    This paper examines the evidence on the available interventions and points of access to the population at risk.

    No single intervention has been shown in a well conducted randonused controlled trial to reduce suicide.

    The greatest potential seems to rise from limiting the availability of methods.

    In particular it is likely that the introduction of the catalytic convertor will lead to reduced lethality of car exhausts and reductions in suicide using this method.
