The Monday free pdf download: National Suicide Prevention Strategies: a Comparison.

This report was commissioned by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing. Essentially we set out to examine national suicide prevention strategies beginning with Finland in 1992, and including Australia and New Zealand.  The idea was to find strategies that had been in place for over 10 years. We reasoned that if a substantial broad based effort had been made over 10 years, with national policy and national funding support, we should be able to track changes in rates. We found exactly that, and what was really exciting was to prove statistically that (within limits) strategies DO lower suicide rates. We attempted to examine the strategies to find out what elements within them might be of major importance.
