Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
We are organizing a Special Issue on suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The venue is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to: https://0-www-mdpi-com.brum.beds.ac.uk/journal/ijerph.
Preventing suicide and reducing distress caused by suicide is a public health challenge across the globe. To prevent suicide, prolong life, and promote physical, mental, and social well-being, innovation in preventing suicide and life promotion are critical. Across the spectrum of suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention, there is significant need to draw attention to programs with an evidence base and new and innovative clinical and nonclinical programs, with a focus on the inclusion of lived experience.
This Special Issue is open to any subject area related to suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention. We strongly encourage submissions that demonstrate collaborative practices, with people with lived experience of suicide, service providers, and researchers. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the many possibilities.
