Suicide prevention in Ukraine

Show Summary Details


According to the WHO official data, for the period from 1986 to 1996, there was a dramatic rise in suicide rates in the Ukraine, from 18.47 to 29.43 per 100,000. Since 1997, there has been a steady lowering of suicide rates, and the latest available data, in 2006, is 19.54. per 100,000. Nevertheless, today, the Ukraine remains the country with ‘high’ suicide rates, where suicide in males is almost five times higher than in females, and in rural areas suicide rates are almost twice as high as in the urban environment.
