“Each year in the U.S., 25,000
adults commit suicide. People who have attempted suicide are at high risk for
another suicide attempt. Researchers wanted to know how to reduce that risk.
They may have found their answer in a particular kind of psychotherapy, which
appears to cut that risk by half.”



According to Mind, suicide is the leading cause of death for men aged between 15 and 44. In the UK there were 5,910 deaths by suicide in 2001.
