The EU-Co-funded “Joint Action on Implementation of Best Practices in the area of Mental Health”, short JA ImpleMENTAL has a duration of 3 years, lasting from October 2021 to September 2024. Detailed information can be found at the project’s website JA ImpleMENTAL ( It aims to promote and improve mental health structures, services, capacity and outcomes in participating countries in 2 specific areas: (-) mental health reform (promoting community health services) and (-) suicide prevention. Two national best practices - mental health reform in Belgium and the Austrian suicide prevention programme SUPRA - serve as best practice examples. Selected components of these should be prioritised and implemented over the course of the JA in 14 i.e. 17 participating EU-countries. JA ImpleMENTAL comprises 6 Work Packages (WPs), 4 horizontal WPS and one for each best practice. WP6 on suicide prevention aims to support improvement in knowledge and quality of suicide prevention services. Defined elements of “SUPRA” should be transferred and pilot implemented at national/regional level, suicide prevention strategies in participating countries developed i.e. revised. The present country profile is one of the deliverables of the JA, presenting key facts and national priorities for suicide prevention. It summarizes results of the national Situation- and Needs assessment (SANA), recommendations and prioritized measures for suicide prevention. It includes challenges and opportunities as well as outlining next steps necessary to scale-up i.e. promote national/regional suicide prevention activities. The country profile is a basis for strategy formulation, for decision-making and a declaration of commitment to suicide prevention.
