In addition to various biological and psychological factors, sociocultural factors have a tremendous impact on suicidal behaviour. It is therefore possible to examine patterns of suicidal behaviour as observed in various sociocultural environments. Asia and Pacific societies have many unique features - history, culture, geographic background, and recent economic development. This book examines and compares for the first time, suicidal behaviour among the various societies in these regions, which include Japan, Korea, mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Hawaii. This volume should be of value to health professionals and administrators, mental health workers, employers as well as the general public.
