While factors contributing to suicide can vary among specific demographic and population groups, the most vulnerable, such as the young, the elderly and the socially isolated, are in the greatest need of suicide prevention efforts. It is important to address the specific underlying causes of suicide and develop action plans to suit each country and its communities.
The framework provides the strategies needed to achieve this goal. Importantly, it is a national suicide prevention strategy that allows communities to come together, and begin to tackle suicide and the issues specific to their needs without stigmatization.
