LIFE

PROJECT

A comprehensive, preventative out- and inpatient

Program for suicidal adolescents

at the Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Clinic (KJPP)

of the Psychiatric University Hospital Zürich (PUK)

“Every 40 seconds a person dies by suicide somewhere in the world and many more attempt suicide. Suicides occur in all regions of the world and throughout the lifespan. Notably, among young people 15-29 years of age, suicide is the second leading cause of death globally.”

A unique project in Zürich dedicated to prevention and treatment of teenagers with suicide ideation

In the Canton of Zürich, a comprehensive approach including prevention and early intervention together with outpatient and inpatient care in the area of adolescent suicide is lacking.

 

In response to this problem, the Clinic for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (KJPP) at the Psychiatric University Hospital Zürich (PUK) in partnership with Children Action Foundation is developing the Life Project, a dedicated program to meet the needs of young people facing life problems.

The Life Project is based on the model of Malatavie Crisis Unit in Geneva, a comprehensive preventative, out-and inpatient program focusing on suicidal crises in adolescents. Set up in 1996 thanks to a public/private agreement between Children Action and the Geneva University Hospitals Malatavie Crisis Unit, with more than 18,000 young people accompanied, is considered today as a center of excellence in the area of teen suicide prevention and care, enjoying international recognition.
