The unmatched drop in suicides that Sri Lanka achieved around the turn of the century provide lessons for what is useful to try now, as our rates gradually plateau. Looking back over that phase of dramatic reduction in rates provides an opportunity also to examine critically the strategies used in other countries, to reduce suicides. And examining little explored facets of the puzzling phenomenon that suicide is, helps us develop new insights about our own unsuicidal existence.
