Conference paper

Abstract

In Denmark, as in most other Western countries, the increasing rates of parasuicide have given rise to growing concern, and a considerable part of the research on suicidal behavior in recent years has been concentrating on this special type of self-destructive behavior. The aim of this paper is to review some of the results of research carried out at the Institute of Psychiatry at O dense University Hospital.
