Culture and Suicide
Pp. 9-29 (21)
The impact of culture of suicide, both at the aggregate level and the individual level, is
discussed. The deleterious impact of a changing culture, especially for native and aboriginal groups, is
noted, and the assumption of the cultural invariability of suicidal phenomena questioned. The
implications of cultural differences for counseling the suicidal client are explored.
Suicide, culture, prevention.
