Suicide and community psychiatric care
Cantor, C. H., Burnett, P. C., Quinn, J., Nizette, D., & Brook, C. (1992) Suicide and community psychiatric care. Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavia, 85(3), pp. 229-233.
A preliminary survey of 34 suicides among patients attending community services for the chronically mentally ill revealed a rate of 520 per 100,000 admitted. In contrast to earlier hospital surveys, no risk variables were identified for patients dying by suicide. Thirty-four percent of suicides occurred within one week of the last treatment and 59% within 3 months of service entry. It appears that early and intensive follow-up may be necessary to prevent suicide among patients receiving community psychiatric care.
