Suicide data on P.E.I. subject of report
The P.E.I. government has completed a report looking at suicide on the Island, CBC News has learned.
The study, prepared through the office of the chief medical officer of health, looks at 10 years of data, from 2002 to 2011.
The province says the report shows the rate of suicide was relatively stable over the time period examined. It looks into risk factors and how people who died by suicide interacted with the health system.
The report will help with Dr. Rhonda Matters' work on a provincial mental health and addictions strategy, said officials.
Government plans to release the report to the public by the end of the month.
