Project Details


Every day the number of people who decide to take their own lives for various reasons, among which are, the consumption of psychoactive substances, suffering from depression, chronic illness, pain or the experience of stressful life events grows; this situation has become a worldwide public health problem that affects the diversity of populations, among which is the military population. the present study with a quantitative methodology aims to establish a suicide risk prevention model and evaluate the effect of the suicide prevention program in military populations of different ranks, located in different military contexts of latin america (colombia, mexico, and argentina). the research will take place in two phases; in the first phase, a meta-analysis will be carried out to determine according to the accumulated scientific evidence on the effectiveness of suicide risk prevention programs and techniques. the quality of the evidence will be assessed using the questionnaire called instrument to evaluate the methodological quality of the articles selected for the meta-analysis, and the effect size index for each program, technique or intervention strategy will be calculated, in order to identify those that have an acceptable level of effect and thus extract a list of recommendations. in the second phase, a suicide prevention program will initially be designed and validated for the population under study and subsequently, an ecological pre-experimental scientific study will be carried out to determine the effect of the application of the program. suicidal risk will be assessed with the suicide risk questionnaire, the depression questionnaire in men and a sociodemographic data questionnaire. a measure will be taken as baseline, a post-intervention measure, and a follow-up measure 3 months later. in the analysis of the results, a comparison will be made of the measures obtained before and after the suicide risk and the risk-enhancing factors.
