Impact of postvention focused strategies on psychological markers among suicide attempters admitted in Government head quarters hospital at Erode

According to The World Health Organization, in India, suicide is an emerging and serious public health issue. Suicide rates in India have been rising over the past five decades (Swain, Prafulla Kumar, etal., 2021). Suicides during 2019 increased by 3.4% in comparison to 2018. Shockingly, every 3 seconds someone attempts suicide in India. It posits that experiences of defeat, triggered by stressful life events or other environmental precipitants, lead to entrapment and ultimately

suicidal ideation (O Connor and Kirtley, 2018).

Postvention refers to a range of activities following a suicide. Suicide postvention is part of the overall spectrum of suicide prevention activities. Although postvention occurs after a death by suicide, it is preventive in that it reduces suicide risk by identifying and supporting the emotional and mental health needs of the survivors. Postvention includes procedures to alleviate the distress of suicidally bereaved individuals, reduce the risk of imitative suicidal behavior, and promote the healthy recovery of the affected community.
