Suicide prevention. An evidence review
The Evidence Centre of the Health Research Board (HRB) was commissioned by the National Office for Suicide Prevention to carry out a review of the evidence base for suicide prevention. In this report, we present our findings from a review of reviews, seeking to answer two research questions: 1. Which suicide prevention interventions have been evaluated in the published literature? 2. For which prevention interventions is there good-quality evidence that they reduce suicidal behaviours (measured by a decrease in completed suicides, suicide attempts, (deliberate) self-harm or suicidal ideation)?
