Suicide is a serious and complex public health problem. Health care providers, including both
psychiatrists and primary care physicians, are just beginning to understand the intricacies involved
in suicide and its prevention. Suicide rates continue to rise, making the education of the public
and physicians regarding awareness and prevention, recognition of a wide range of risk factors, and
research into suicide prevention strategies very important.
