The WHO Multisite Intervention Study on Suicidal Behaviours (SUPRE-MISS) was launched on the five continents to increase knowledge about suicidal behaviours and effective interventions for suicide attempters in culturally diverse places around the globe, with the ultimate goal of reducing mortality and morbidity associated with suicidal behaviours.

The three components of SUPRE-MISS are a community description to grasp basic sociocultural characteristics, a community survey to identify suicidal behaviours, and a randomized controlled trial to evaluate treatment strategies for suicide attempters treated in emergency care settings of the same catchment area. Three specific instruments were used for the three components of the study and commonly applied in all participating sites. These assessment instruments were designed for SUPRE-MISS in particular, partly based on existing instruments and measurements and compiling them. They succeeded in fulfilling the requirements of being applicable across different cultures, manageable in low- and middle-income countries, assessing suicidal behaviours, and comprising well-established and widely recognized predictors of suicidal behaviours.
