From the Back Cover:

The International Handbook of Suicide Prevention showcases the most up-to-date research, policy and practice in suicide prevention. Contributors to this edited volume – a group of the world's leading authorities on suicidal behaviour – address the key issues of why people attempt suicide, the best interventions, treatments and care for those at risk, and the major international challenges in suicide prevention.

The book offers detailed discussion of the difficulties involved in bringing together research, policy and practice in order to achieve the universal goal of a reduction in suicide rates around the world. The editors and contributors argue that, in order for this goal to be achieved, academics, clinicians, survivors - and policy-planners need to work together, to share insights and expertise in order to enhance mutual learning.

Describing the latest theoretically-derived and evidence-based research and practice from across the globe – which will have implications across countries, cultures and the lifespan – this volume is an invaluable source of information and guidance to a broad audience, including health and social care professionals and researchers, and students of psychology and medicine.
