The e-book is an efficient addition to the library of an individual attracted to the extensive subject of cultural psychiatry. It reminds us that the significance of tradition and ethnicity is not just to be visible within the context of symptom expression, or perhaps in that of occurrence of issues, yet within the both vital context of ways and why we regularly reply or fail to answer psychotropic medicinal drugs.

Good risk assessment to be based on training and measures taken to improve compliance. It is widely accepted that depression is a risk factor in suicide but how does the practitioner decide whether someone is simply depressed and not suicidal? This question is a difficult one to answer for many newcomers to the field of mental health and was one of three challenging questions posed at the beginning of this chapter. Some avoid taking the risk and treat the patient as if they are seriously at risk; others miss suicidal ideation and intent completely; and, others respond to a ‘hunch’ they have that their patient may be at risk.
Other outcomes are available instead of immediate hospitalisation. Aldridge and Rossiter (1983), in adopting a brief therapy approach, assessed suicidal behaviour strategically as a systemic phenomenon. They combined the brief therapy principles of Weakland et al. (1974) and the neutral approach of the Milan Associates (Palazzoli, 1980). Aldridge and Rossiter, in acknowledging with the patient their right to die, if that is what they chose, had a serious conversation as referred to above about both dying and the usefulness of a hospital admission, which probably, would change nothing.
I have spoken much of suicide as the completed act where death has been the outcome. There is, however, a distinction between ‘completed suicide’ and ‘attempted suicide’. For the purpose of this book, I am defining attempted suicide as a serious attempt to end one’s life which has been unsuccessful for whatever reason. I put much emphasis on the word serious to distinguish it from other self-harming behaviours which I will discuss below. I mentioned earlier, in one of the definitions, the idea of pain playing an important part in suicidal thinking and behaviour.
