Suicide Prevention Across the Lifespan in Low- and Middle-Income Countries

This concept aims to address the gaps in our knowledge about suicide risk, protective factors, and suicide preventive interventions and strategies for people across the lifespan in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and to strengthen and sustain local research capacity. This concept would support innovative experimental (e.g., hybrid effectiveness-implementation research) and non-experimental (e.g., ecological studies, simulation studies) research to evaluate scalable and financially sustainable multilevel preventive interventions and strategies to reduce suicide risk (suicide ideation and behavior, including acts of self-harm and suicide) and promote resilience.
