Suicide in Asia

A presentation by Paul Yip, Professor of Social Work and Social Administration at the University of Hong Kong and Director of the Centre for Suicide Research and Prevention

April 15, 2009 11:00am to January 1, 1999 12:00am

Suicide has become a major public health issue throughout the world. More than a million people kill themselves every year. More than half occur in Asia. This relatively high suicide rate compared to that of Western countries, paired with Asia’s large population, makes suicide a significant concern. Join us for a discussion onunique and practical evidence-based practices for suicide prevention in Asia.
