Abstract

Suicide is a major health problem everywhere in the world, and its prevention currently receives increasing attention. After the short summary of suicide risk factors, the authors review the clinically most useful (psychiatric-medical) suicide risk factors that can help healthcare workers in the identification and management of groups at higher risk of suicide. However, because not only healthcare workers are responsible for suicide prevention, the role of community leaders as well as the importance of the media are also briefly discussed.
