Topics from this paper

Suicide Attempts in Turkey: Results of the WHO—EURO Multicentre Study on Suicidal Behaviour
TLDR
Compared with the results from other European research centres, attempted suicide rates in Turkey were relatively low, however, the increase in rates was striking, possibly related to the intense economic difficulties, increasing unemployment, and rapid social change experienced in Turkey in recent years.
Emergency room visits for suicide attempts: rates, trends and sociodemographic characteristics of suicide attempts in Northeastern Anatolia
TLDR
Self-poisoning is the most common method for attempted suicide in Northeastern Turkey, and the risk groups in the region appeared to be younger and married females.
Gender differences in suicide attempters in Hungary: retrospective epidemiological study.
TLDR
Significant differences were found in the risk factors for suicide attempts between men and women and gender differences should be taken into consideration while building up the helping strategies.
Non-fatal suicidal behaviour in Padua, Italy, in two different periods: 1992–1996 and 2002–2006
TLDR
There was a significant increase in suicidal events in Padua and the most remarkable change was in the number of non-Italian-born subjects, who should be specifically targeted by suicide prevention activities.
Suicide attempts in the county of Basel: results from the WHO/EURO Multicentre Study on Suicidal Behaviour.
TLDR
Significant gender differences were found in the various methods and in the frequency of psychiatric diagnoses, which contributes to developing local targeted prevention strategies, for example education of risk groups and caregivers, and pharmacolegal consequences for package sizes.
The main factors of repetition: review of some results of the Pecs Center in the WHO/EURO Multicentre Study on Suicidal Behaviour.
TLDR
In the sample, mental disorders were the most significant risk factor for repeated attempts and the odds ratio was highest for personality disorders, suggesting a higher importance of major mental health problems among repeaters.
Suicide attempts and related factors in patients admitted to a general hospital: a ten-year cross-sectional study (1997-2007)
TLDR
Age, psychopathological diagnosis and previous suicide attempts are determinants of suicide attempts.
Contacts of suicide attempters with healthcare services in Pecs and Bern in the WHO/EURO Multicentre Study on Parasuicide
TLDR
Comparison of patterns of contact made by patients with GPs and other healthcare professionals in two European cities prior to attempting suicide found that a consistent and personal relationship with a medical helper or system facilitates the communication of suicidal ideation.
Repetition of attempted suicide among teenagers in Europe: frequency, timing and risk factors
TLDR
For young suicide attempters, follow-up and adequate aftercare are very important if repetition and risk of suicide are to be reduced, particularly to those who have already made more than one attempt.
Repetition of Attempted Suicide among Immigrants in Europe
TLDR
The lower repetition frequencies in non-Western immigrants, compared with locals, in Europe stands in contrast to their markedly higher tendency to attempt suicide in general, possibly pointing to situational stress factors related to their suicidal crisis that are less persistent over time.

TLDR
The epidemiology of suicide and parasuicide in Great Britain is reviewed, and the leading methods of suicide are poisoning, hanging and domestic gas, though deaths by domestic gas poisoning had disappeared completely by 1990 with the detoxification of gas.
Parasiticide in Europe: the WHO/EURO multicentre study on parasuicide. I. Introduction and preliminary analysis for 1989
TLDR
Findings from the epidemiological monitoring project are presented, based on a preliminary examination of data collected in 15 centres on parasuicides aged 15 years and over treated in health facilities in defined catchment areas during the year 1989, and it is argued that the differences between centres are valid and should be addressed in further research.
