Suicide Prevention from a Public Health Perspective.
Potter, Lloyd B.; And Others
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v25 n1 p82-91 Spr 1995
The public health approach to suicide prevention consists of health-event surveillance to describe the problem, epidemiologic analysis to identify risk factors, the design and evaluation of interventions, and the implementation of prevention programs. Community suicide prevention programs should include more than one strategy and, where appropriate, should be strongly linked with the community's mental health resources. (JPS)
