And an accompanying editorial suggests that "a multilevel approach to suicide prevention (increasing public and clinical awareness, training general practitioners to recognise and refer patients with suicidal ideation and behaviours, facilitating access to treatment, and restricting access to means of suicide) would be beneficial." And that, this approach needs to me targeted at children before the age when the risk of suicidal behaviour starts to increase.
