New student blog post on suicide prevention – read it here

Two students from Masters (MSc) in Global Health at the University of Copenhagen has been writing a blog post on suicide prevention.

Under the title 'Why we need a paradigm shift in suicide prevention' the authors Frederik Løgstrup Magnusson and Christian Ulrich Eriksen argues that economic inequality, stigmatization, marginalization, and social control should be taken into account when planning and implementing measures to prevent suicide. 

"[..] suicide cannot be thought of solely as the result of a lack of access to high quality mental health care, though that may play an important role as well.
