To this end, two sub-objectives are (1) to evaluate the effect of the suicide prevention system in terms of completed suicides, non-fatal suicide attempts and patients’ suicidal ideation and (2) to explore which factors facilitate or hinder the implementation of the suicide prevention system, or are associated with early withdrawal.
