The decision to adopt the Strategy for suicide prevention in Östergötland 2021-2025 was made by the regional board and the health and medical care committee this week.

"Help and support faster"

Research shows that suicidal ideation can be prevented, but then society's bodies must work in a more coordinated manner.

- Those who have suicidal thoughts must get help and support faster.

Therefore, a county-wide strategy is important for strengthening the efforts and the preventive work against suicide throughout the county, says the regional board chairman Kaisa Karro (S) in a statement.
