Abstract

While mental illness is a leading cause of suicide in high-income countries, Grace Crowley discusses the results of a study that identified inadequate sex education as a possible risk factor for self-poisoning in Sri Lanka. She argues for a nuanced approach to suicide research, using mixed-methods to better understand the drivers of self-harm and suicidal behaviour in low- and middle-income countries.
