"Optimizing suicide prevention programs and their implementation in Europe" (OSPI-Europe) was a collaborative research project funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme. The goal of OSPI-Europe was to provide EU members with an evidence based prevention concept for suicidality. Further, concrete materials and instruments for running and evaluating these interventions and recommendations for the proper implementation of the intervention have been developed and disseminated.

The OSPI project was funded by the European Commission under the 7th framework programme.
