Suicide Research Group
The Suicide Research Group studies epidemiological and clinical risk and resilience factors of suicidality and aims to develop preventive interventions,
which then can be translated into effective treatments, suicide prevention initiatives and health promotion programs.
Suicide Prevention focuses on individual and societal factors by interventions and preventive programs. According to international models,
the Austrian government started to implement a National Suicide Prevention Plan (SUPRA
, Suicide Prevention Austria) in 2012. The Suicide Research Group is one of the major
collaborators supporting the implementation process of SUPRA by the Austrian Ministry of Health.
