Prevention of suicide and suicidal behaviour in adolescents

  • Protocol
  • Intervention



This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

1. To determine whether school, community, primary health-care or other institution-based interventions for the prevention of suicide in adolescents are effective in reducing suicide attempts, reducing symptoms of known risk factors for suicide or increasing the likelihood of identifying at-risk individuals
2. To identify possible adverse effects associated with interventions
3. To determine, if possible, which features of interventions are most successful, for example, where programmes include more than one of the components listed in the description of the intervention section above. Other features of interventions which could be explored include frequency, intensity, mode of delivery, characteristics of providers and setting
4. To highlight areas where further research is most needed
