comment[edit]

  • feel that if someone wants to mark the article for cleanup, it is not appropriate to do so without posting comments on the talk page! adam black 2005 July 6 23:38 (UTC)
  • just added some new material - let me know what you think! also, here are my thoughts on an overall outline for the interventions section - if you're interested in working together to flesh this out/revise the outline/etc. let me know on my talk page!

INTERVENTIONS (and effectiveness)

  • Prevention at the Level of the Individual
Identifying Risk and Increasing Help-Seeking Behavior
Developing Life Skills and Promoting Social Networks
Providing Mental Health Services and Crisis Management (incl. Hotlines and Crisis Centers)
  • Prevention at the Level of the Population
Targeting Environmental Risk Factors (incl. Lethal Means Reduction with added info on bridge barriers, restriction on medication access, lethal means counseling, etc. as well as added info on opposing viewpoints such as from the gun industry)
Targeting Societal Risk Factors [incl. Improvement of Media Portrayal of Suicide and Stigma Reducing Efforts]

Suicide note[edit]

I just stumbled across this [1] . I dont now how real it is but its worrying. There is a Wikipedia article on Chris McKinstry. His blog looks as though he's just taken his life. Lumos3 23:30, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

Clean Up?[edit]

This article lacks any kind of citation or sources for all the statements made. A source for the "intervention for recurrent suicide attempters is being developed which involves a combination of open discussion of the daily lived experience of individuals who have made repeated suicide attempts, and teaching new skills that can be used to 'stay safe'" would be helpful, as well as a source for each heading.

Phone line[edit]

We do not typically put help lines on the top of articles. Specifically since this one was country specific. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 21:55, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Images[edit]

They all seem to be US sourced. Might be worth adding examples from elsewhere, if anyone can source some. Dolescum (talk) 18:20, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

It seems this article is US focused, I've tagged it as such at the top. - A Canadian Toker (talk) 14:44, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
