Suicide Trends in At-Risk Territories (START)
Components of the START Study
- Monitoring of Suicide Deaths and Attempts, including deliberate self-harm;
- Randomized-Controlled Intervention with Suicide Attempters (the Brief Intervention Project);
- Psychological Autopsy Cross-Cultural Study; and
- Follow-up Medically Serious Suicide Attempters.
All components but the Monitoring component are optional, and their implementation depends on the resources and infrastructure available in each participating country.
