Suicidal behaviour is a major public health issue. Suicidal behaviour is one of the main causes of years of life lost and it is the third leading cause of death among young adults. This project was initiated by the Spanish Society of Psychiatry and the Spanish Society of Biological Psychiatry with the aim of providing a document containing the main recommendations on the prevention and management of suicidal behaviour; these recommendations should be based on the best available evidence and the experts' opinion. In this article we summarize the review of the available evidence on the epidemiology and impact of suicidal behaviour, risk and protective factors, evaluation tools for the assessment of suicide risk, international and local preventive protocols, educational interventions for health professionals, and potential interventions for at risk populations. Based on this review, a panel of psychiatrists summarized and agreed a set of recommendations about the impact, prevention and management of suicidal behaviour. The recommendations on the prevention and management of suicidal behaviour were summarized in the ten conclusions reported in this article. Copyright © 2011 SEP y SEPB. Published by Elsevier Espana.
