[font=]The Situational Approach [/font][font=]- A new approach to suicide prevention: This approach acknowledges the predominant association of situational distress, rather than mental illness, with suicide (though in some cases the two are linked), and is principally informed by and responds to risk factors of a broad spectrum of difficult human experiences across the life span. This approach is also mindful of and wherever possible seeks to address: contextual, systemic, and socio-cultural risk and protective factors and determinants: the real world of individualsí lived experience.[/font]

Suicide prevention initiatives that are preoccupied with detection of illness or disorder like major depression may well be putting peopleís lives at risk, by not attending to forms of distress that donít constitute illness or disorder, and yet which can result in suicidal ideation and suicide.
A useful corrective term that can help counter the current mental illness/disorder narrative, and provide a sounder basis for suicide prevention is situational distress.
