Suicide is the second leading cause of death in young adults. Suicide attempts by violent methods predict later completed suicide and premature mortality. Suicide prevention is a major public health issue in this specific population. The French Student Health Foundation (FSEF) developed a psychiatric ward that includes psychiatric and somatic approaches. This transdisciplinary unit provides mixed psychiatric and rehabilitation treatments for those persons who have attempted suicide and have severe somatic injuries.
