In this edition of the Situational Approach Bulletin we take a closer look at the breakdown for our national figures for suicide deaths. We challenge the description of ‘mental disorder’ being applied to many of these deaths.
We call for a thorough review of how we collect and analyse our suicide data; important changes need to be made in this process if we are to make any inroads at all into reducing the mounting toll of suicide deaths.
