Stress factors such as financial difficulties or troubles with interpersonal relationships often play a role. Efforts to prevent suicide include limiting access to firearms, treating mental illness and drug misuse, and improving economic development. Although crisis hotlines are common there is little evidence for their effectiveness. The most commonly used method of suicide varies by country and is partly related to availability.

Attempts are more common in young people and females.
