Supply of information
The cooperation within European networks allow the exchange of research findings with those from other research units. Research findings also serve to correct misunderstandings related to suicidal behaviour such as the myths as mentioned above. Therefore, the collection of facts is an important objective. In order to achieve this goal, the Unit is establishing a library with books, journals and papers related to suicidal behaviour. Research findings are distributed by means of publications in major mental and public health journals, and by means of scientific contributions to symposia and scientific congresses. The research findings are available for policy makers at governmental levels, and for distribution in the general publication by means of the mass media (news papers, television). The Unit also is frequently asked to contribute to informative meetings for the general public or health professionals (e.g. general practitioners).
