Suicide prevention in Canada

Show Summary Details


Suicide is a major public health problem in Canada. While several different initiatives have been made since 2000 to develop and implement a national strategy, the Canadian Government still has no public suicide-prevention programme. However, a few Canadian provinces and/or jurisdictions currently have or previously had a defined and/or implemented suicide prevention programme or targeted strategy. This chapter describes the major points of these strategies and identifies areas of concern.
