dc.description.abstractSuicidal behaviour continues to be an important topic of research and significant public health concern globally [1–3]. Each year, approximately 800,000 people worldwide die by suicide, and by region, the rates are highest in Europe (especially Eastern Europe), South-East Asia, and in some regions of Africa [2–4]. There are notable gender and age differences in suicidal behaviour, and in most regions, males are associated with higher suicide rates than females and risk of dying by suicide is increasing with age [5]. Official suicide statistics are only the tip of the iceberg and the magnitude of the problem becomes evident when the whole range of suicidal behaviour—attempts, plans, thoughts—are taken into account [6].
