Research interests

I have been dedicated to research on suicide prevention since 1999. My main research focus has ​been population-based studies using register data in collaboration with international researcher. Lately, we have initiated several interventions focused on suicide prevention. In these, we examine how people at risk may be supported and if the support helps. My research interest furthermore cover: effectiveness of psychosocial therapy, means restriction, suicidal behaviour in older adults, bereaved by suicide, and affected by suicide attempt.
