The aims of the training are:

  • to present good examples of surveillance systems linked to suicide and self-harm

We will cover the questionof what are the basic steps in compiling statistics on suicidal behaviour and related aspects, present examples of a live surveillance data systems and discuss how it´s possible to use them, share experiences with combining different registers and utilizing suicide related data with innovative research approaches and focus also on psychological autopsies.
