Abstract

Although suicide is very complex, multicausal human behaviour, untreated major mood disorders, particularly in combination with adverse life situations, carry the highest risk for it. As medical contact before suicide is quite frequent healthcare workers, particularly general practitioners, play important role in suicide prevention. This paper summarizes the healthcare-based educational programmes that have been shown effective in reducing suicide morbidity and mortality even in this high-risk population.
