The Who/START Study: Promoting Suicide Prevention for a Diverse Range of Cultural Contexts
De Leo, Diego; Milner, Allison
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v40 n2 p99-106 Apr 2010
The WHO/Start Study is introduced and described in its four main components. The study originated as a response to growing concerns about trends of suicide, the prevalence of which in the Western Pacific Region of the World Health Organization is the highest among the six regions of the WHO. So far, nineteen centers have joined the study. This ambitious project is expected to provide important transcultural perspectives on both fatal and nonfatal suicidal behaviors, together with increased awareness for these phenomena and the growth of culture-sensitive prevention programs.
