Abstract

The internet can provide valuable support for persons with suicidal tendencies. By means of the Google search engine we found and categorised 153 Dutch websites dealing with suicide. The websites relating to suicide prevention (n = 23) were scored for quality against a list of 17 quality features. The standard of the Dutch online suicide prevention websites is not optimal. Improvement is needed particularly in the find of e-help, and interactive possibilities need to be extended.
