- Brief summarySuicide, attempted suicide and suicidal thoughts are a major problem in Dutch society. Face-to-face treatments often consist of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) or Problem Solving Treatment (PST). However, about 50% of the people who die by suicide are not in contact with mental health care services at that moment, and many have never been treated. Even when patients are being treated for depression or other emotional disorders, many do not disclose their suicidal thoughts to their care provider. This may be out of shame, due to fear of stigma or to not having faith in (mental) health care. Web-based self-help might be a promising new way to reach people with this serious mental health problem who would not be reached otherwise. In this study, a recently developed self-help intervention will be evaluated in a RCT.

The 260 participants will be recruited in the Netherlands.
