Abstract

The World Health Organization has recommended restriction of access to suicide means as the most effective strategy in suicide prevention (Yip et al. 2012). However, this is easier said than done, especially in high-rise living environments in many modern metropolises with tall buildings, like in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taipei. Apparently, it is inconceivable to put bars and rails in all tall buildings to present suicides by jumping.
