Suicide is the leading cause of death for women during the perinatal period, which commences in pregnancy and finishes one year after delivery. Empirical evidence from previous studies shows that pregnant women have greater suicidal ideation than their comparison group in the general population. However, there is a tendency for these problems to be neither prevented nor adequately recognized. Nevertheless, if the dissonances and dilemmas associated with motherhood, as well as mental health problems, are not prevented or adequately addressed, they can affect the well-being of women, their children, and other family members. Risk and protective factors for suicidal behavior in this group of women are discussed, as well as general principles of action. The need for the implementation of prevention strategies is highlighted.

This article reviews, analyzes, and discusses existing data since 2003 on the number of psychologists who are specialists in clinical psychology working in the Spanish National Health System (SNS) from different data sources. The data must be taken with great caution due to the diversity of sources and methodology used, but it is concluded that the total estimated number of Specialist Psychologists in Clinical Psychology plus «PESTOS» [specialist psychologists without an official qualification] who work in the SNS may be around 2,600-2800, with a ratio per 100,000 inhabitants around 5.58, with great differences between autonomous communities. In the last 15 years, the average increase in the ratio of psychologists per 100,000 inhabitants is slightly more than one psychologist.

Every year, the Test Commission of the Spanish Psychological Association promotes the assessment of the test quality of several published tests. The aim of the present study is two-fold: a) to present results for the eighth review, and b) to consider the contribution of the universities in this process. Ten experts, 332 students, and seven professors participated in this edition and the standard protocol for review was aligned towards a service-learning format. For the 11 tests assessed, results showed an adequate quality (average of 3.9 points on a 1-5 rating scale) similar to previous years (r = .90). The strengths were test development and standardization, and there were a number of proposals for improving other sections suggested. The service-learning approach contributed to the diversification of voices in the process, with students' and experts' reports showing similar quality and an expected level of agreement (r = .67). We conclude that this project has helped to identify the opportunity to further expand the use of shared language in order to strengthen the communication between the test publishers, the promoters of the Spanish model of test assessment, and the test users, especially in the case of beginners.
