European Network for Suicidology (ENS)

For years, a need for cooperation and better communication has been expressed by many persons working full-time or part-time (or professionally or voluntarily) with the problem of suicidal behaviour. The topic has been discussed among a small group of people involved in the field of suicidology, and it is hoped that a European Network could be established, the purpose of which being:

1. to establish a European coordinated network covering initiatives and efforts in the area of suicide research and suicide prevention, involving researchers, clinicians, and volunteers.
2. to establish a non-governmental organization, which in cooperation with the World Federation for Mental Health, the International Association for Suicide Prevention and other relevant organizations can enter into a dialogue with WHO/EURO and EU.

The project was discussed with representatives from WHO/EURO (Dr. J. Sampaio Faria) and EU, Luxemburg (Paul Atkinson) and both expressed an interest in supporting such a European collaboration in this field.

In the nearest future, the ENS will work towards official agreements of cooperation with existing organisations, for example to ensure the interchange of addresses of people working in the field, and a better utilization of the limited resources for research and prevention of suicidal behaviour. The ENS will also intensify the effort towards a development of an ENS home page on the Internet where the mentioned list among other things could be easily accessible.

The next assembly of the ENS is planned to take place during the next European conference which is in Gent in 1998. They are also working on some ideas to organize workshops on issues which were raised by the respondents. These small workshops could take place during the conference in Gent.
