Dr Pat Devitt and Derek Beattie explore suicide in different cultures and historical periods, survey various public-policy approaches to the subject (looking at what works and what doesn't), investigate links between economic performance and suicide, and provide an in-depth examination of suicide prevention.

They also look at the impact of media portrayals of suicide.

Finally, they offer practical advice to those dealing with suicide and its aftermath.
