This reproducible R Markdown analysis was created with workflowr (version 1.6.2). The Checks tab describes the reproducibility checks that were applied when the results were created. The Past versions tab lists the development history.
Great! Since the R Markdown file has been committed to the Git repository, you know the exact version of the code that produced these results.
Great! You are using Git for version control. Tracking code development and connecting the code version to the results is critical for reproducibility.
The results in this page were generated with repository version 2d46708. See the Past versions tab to see a history of the changes made to the R Markdown and HTML files.
Note that you need to be careful to ensure that all relevant files for the analysis have been committed to Git prior to generating the results (you can use
wflow_git_commit). workflowr only checks the R Markdown file, but you know if there are other scripts or data files that it depends on. Below is the status of the Git repository when the results were generated:
working directory clean
Note that any generated files, e.g. HTML, png, CSS, etc., are not included in this status report because it is ok for generated content to have uncommitted changes.
These are the previous versions of the repository in which changes were made to the R Markdown (
analysis/index.Rmd) and HTML (
index.html) files. If you’ve configured a remote Git repository (see
?wflow_git_remote), click on the hyperlinks in the table below to view the files as they were in that past version.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused widespread morbidity and mortality as well as disruption to people’s lives and livelihoods around the world. There are concerns that rates of suicide, suicidal behaviours and self-harm may rise during and in the aftermath of the pandemic – with particular concerns around the impact of lockdown, economic recession and service disruption as well as high risk groups such as older people, people with pre-existing mental illness and children and young people.
Given the likely rapidly expanding research evidence base on the pandemic’s impact on rates of suicide, suicidal behaviours and self-harm and emerging evidence about how best to mitigate such effects, it is important that the best available knowledge is made readily available to policymakers, public health specialists and clinicians as soon as is possible. To facilitate this, we are conducting a living systematic review focusing on suicide prevention in relation to COVID-19.
Daily automated searches are feeding into our web-based screening system. Following initial screening, articles are reviewed daily by suicide prevention experts in our team. Key publications and evidence summaries will be shared with policy makers in the UK, Ireland and Internationally. Our eligibility criteria are wide and include aspects of incidence and prevalence of suicidal behaviour, effects of exposures, modelling studies and effects of interventions to mitigate the impact of pandemic on suicidal behaviour. The published version of the review will be updated at three-monthly intervals if a sufficient volume of new evidence justifies doing so.
Please see the “Results” tab to view a summary of the current evidence.
