Suicidal behavior (SB) has a dramatic epidemiological and clinical relevance in Switzerland. Both official reports and literature highlight SB prevention as a priority and recommend adopting new approaches, inspired by psychological models and ensuing in pragmatic interventions. Moreover, Emergency Room's (ER) role as a critical link in SB prevention chain is encouraged. Based on « Interpersonal Theory of Suicide », « impossible situation », and connectedness constructs, such interventions could be realized at ER through m-Health applications, with the main aim of reinforcing the patient's feeling of connectedness to his context. However, these applications have to be used with a critical view, because in no case they can be assimilated to clinical evaluation or human presence and interaction in the therapeutic relation.
