A Quantitative Literature Review of the Effectiveness of Suicide Prevention Centers.
Dew, Mary Amanda; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v55 n2 p239-44 Apr 1987
Applied meta-analysis to several series of studies to evaluate the effectiveness of prevention centers. Results indicate that centers do attract a high-risk population; center clients were more likely to commit suicide than were members of the general population, and individuals who committed suicide were more likely to have been clients than were members of the general population.
