Suicide is now the 2nd cause of death among children and adolescents aged 10-19, in high income countries in the European Region” said Dr Hans Kluge, WHO Europe Director, on 21 March 2022, at the launch of a new European programme to strengthen and improve the quality of mental health services for young people.

Concerning research, Fondation FondaMental Suisse is currently focussed on 3 priorities:

  • Identification of risk factors
  • Detection of high-risk subjects
  • Preventing suicide.

We are now seeking private supports for the ‘4PU’ project, which aims to create a new diagnostic grid for a better management of suicidal crises in hospital emergency departments.
