Abstract

Suicide is a major health problem throughout the world. After briefly describing the risk factors for suicide, the author focuses on depression, which is the major cause of suicide. Depression is a common illness, treatable not only in psychiatric settings, but also in primary care and general medicine. Consequently, physicians other than psychiatrists (primarily general practitioners) have an important role in suicide prevention. (Int J Psych Clin Pract 1997; 1: 131-134).
