A Community Intervention Trial of Multimodal Suicide Prevention Program in Japan (NOCOMIT-J)
  1. The primary goal for this study is to examine the effectiveness of community-based multimodal intervention program for suicide prevention in relatively high suicide rate region compared to control region.
  2. The secondary goal for this study is to explore the effectiveness of community-based multimodal intervention program for suicide prevention in the highly populated regions. In addition, we examine the effectiveness of the prevention program in the all regions combined.
Suicide is a major public health problem and the number of suicide victims has exceeded 30,000 a year since 1998 in Japan. Suicide rate is almost 25/100,000, which are remarkably high numbers among advanced countries. To examine the effectiveness of community-based multimodal intervention program for suicide prevention, a trial by J-MISP (Japanese Multimodal Intervention Trials for Suicide Prevention). This research project is one of the strategic research projects funded by The Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare.
