Program for Suicide Prevention Research

The main aim of the Program is to conduct research evaluating suicide preventive initiatives, such as treatment for people at risk of suicide and restriction of access to means of suicide. We survey trends in suicidal behaviour in Denmark and develop teaching material for the suicide preventive clinics.

Suicide is seldom due to on single cause but rather an outcome of several causes of related to social, psychological, psychiatric, physical and even biological factors.

The Program is also working to mobilise political interests for the development of a national strategy for suicide prevention in Denmark.
