SBU assess relevant and well-conducted research and investigate what effect different interventions have, if there are any risks or ethical problems, and what is most cost-effective in the areas of health care, dentistry, social services, and within the areas of functional disability and work environment.


In an earlier report, SBU evaluated programs for preventing suicide and suicide attempt in children, focusing on school-based program targeting all children or children in risk groups (SBU 336/2021). During the assessment, it was acknowledged that there is a need to evaluate methods to prevent suicide in children identified at an individual level as being at risk for suicide.
