Rurality and Suicide in Ontario, Canada

With Dr. Rebecca Barry, University of Calgary

This webinar will present the results of three studies on rurality and suicide in Ontario, Canada. The first is a population-based case-control study examining the relationship between rurality and attempted suicide and death by suicide using data held at ICES. This study was recently published in The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry. The second study examines help-seeking prior to a suicide attempt or death by suicide among those living in rural and urban areas. Finally, the third study examines the relationship between travel time to care and suicide. Together, these studies provide insight into how travel time to care and help-seeking may impact risk of suicide in the context of rurality.
