The role of the high-risk approach in suicide prevention

Alexandra Pitman, Eric Caine
2012 British Journal of Psychiatry

This editorial uses the findings of a recent evaluation of a high-risk approach used in England to consider the role of high-risk interventions in national suicide prevention strategies.
