Abstract

Since the promulgation of the Basic Act for Suicide Prevention, suicide prevention in Japan has developed rapidly. In order to further reinforce such activities, it is necessary to balance universal, selective, and indicated prevention. For the revision of the General Principles of Suicide Prevention Policy, the Center for Suicide Prevention announced this recommendation with 29 societies. We hope that it will promote suicide prevention in Japan and lead to expansion of the suicide prevention network by academic organizations, NGOs, as well as local and central government.
