The Canadian Medical Association (CMA) supports the principle of community based suicide prevention centres staffed with appropriate personnel on a 24 hour basis and recommends that the effect of such centres on the reduction of the suicide rate be studied. The CMA recommends that training be given to both medical and other personnel so that they may more readily recognize and treat the potential suicidal patient. The CMA supports efforts by all stakeholders to make the public in general and families of high risk patients in particular, aware of all resources available to treat such patients. The CMA recommends that a central registry be established to provide the necessary statistics, etc., so that epidemiological data may be available for research into this problem.
