WHO:Euro Multicentre Study of Suicidal Behaviour

 

Oxford has been the UK centre for this project, which began in 1989 and continued until recently. We have provided epidemiological data based on the Oxford Monitoring System for Attempted Suicide for comparative studies. We have also participated in an interview study and one year follow up of DSH patients (EPSIS).
