Abstract [en]

Suicide is becoming one of the major causes of death especially amongst men. In Europe suicide is the second most common cause of death in the ages of 15-44 years. For women in the same age group suicide is the fourth most common cause of death. Suicide causes a lot of suffering not only in the victim but also in persons close to him. As the causative factors are complex, and suicide also costs the community a lot of money suicide and self destructive behavior must be considered an important public health issue. A couple of models which are helpful when trying to develop treatment and preventive strategies for suicided persons are presented. The basic principles for contemporary suicide prevention programmes are also described.
