Synopsis

This document is a joint initiative of the Strategic Research Development Committee of the Office of National Health and Medical Research Council, and the Mental Health Branch of the Commonwealth Department of Health and Aged Care, and is composed of three literature  reviews. The first, by Chris Cantor, Kerryn Neulinger, Janet Roth and Dawn Spinks addresses The epidemiology of suicide and attempted suicide in young Australians. The second by Annette Beautrais addresses Risk factors for suicide and attempted suicide among young people, and the third by George Patton and Jane Burns addresses Preventative interventions for youth suicide: A risk factor-based approach.

The reviews were commissioned to provide a summary of the current state of research in the area of youth suicide, based on both Australian and international data, and to highlight key gaps in knowledge.
