Latest Research : Psychiatry : Suicide
Antidepressants are of questionable benefit in teenage suicide cases
There has been much controversy in recent years regarding the correlation between teenage suicide and the use of antidepressant drugs. At an FDA meeting reviewing this topic, the majority of clinical trials examined did not show that the drugs were effective in treating depression in children and adolescents.

Cancer survivors at risk for suicidal thoughts
A survey of adult survivors of childhood cancers found that more than one out of eight reported having suicidal thoughts or previous attempts to take their lives many years after they were treated, say scientists at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The suicidal symptoms were reported by more than 12 percent –- a greater proportion than had been expected -- of patients seen at a clinic providing care for adult cancer survivors, the researchers write in the August 20 issue of the Journal of Clinical Oncology. The findings should prompt providers at survivor clinics to consider the interaction of physical and emotional factors in their follow-up evaluations of patients, they said.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) reduced suicide attempts by half - Study
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) reduced suicide attempts by half compared with other types of psychotherapy available in the community in patients with borderline personality disorder, an NIMH-funded study has found. DBT also excelled at reducing use of emergency room and inpatient services and more than halved therapy dropout rates compared to the mostly traditional approaches, report Marsha Linehan, Ph.D., University of Washington, and colleagues in the July 2006 issue of Archives of General Psychiatry.

The Hopkins study, consistent with previous research, sheds new light on the extent to which being in an abusive relationship compounds suicide risk for HIV-positive women in particular.

SSRIs Cannot Be Blamed For Increased Suicide Rates, a new study shows
Challenging recent claims linking antidepressant use to suicidal behavior, a new study at University Of California, Los Angeles,(UCLA)shows that American suicide rates have dropped steadily since the introduction of Prozac and other serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) drugs.In research published Feb. 1 in the journal Nature Reviews Drug Discovery, the authors caution that regulatory actions to limit SSRI prescriptions may actually increase death rates from untreated depression, the No. 1 cause of suicide.

First case-control study to investigate the relevance of criminal history, psychiatric problems and social integration to suicide in prison
All staff should take suicidal behaviour seriously in custodial institutions, according to a new study published in the December issue of the British Journal of Psychiatry.

Suicide rates in prisons exceed the rates in the general population worldwide. Risk factors include long sentences after highly violent crimes, overcrowding, isolation, psychiatric disorders and alcohol and drug misuse. Evidence for suicidal behaviour as a predictor of suicide in prison has been conflicting until now.

New australian study shown that social and economic disadvantage cause mental disorders and suicide attempts
Findings from a new study from Australia suggest that mental disorders and suicide attempts are caused by social factors. There is a need for social and economic responses beyond provision of mental health services.
Currently, responses to mental disorders usually focus on diagnosis and treatment; socio-economic conditions are less likely to be considered.

Suicidal thoughts, but not suicide, more common among women
One in 38 women and one in 50 men in Britain develop suicidal thoughts each year. But less then one in 200 of these people kill themselves, according to new work published in the November issue of the British Journal of Psychiatry. The research was carried out by the Office of National Statistics and the University of Bristol.
Surprisingly, whilst more men commit suicide than women, suicidal thoughts are more common in women. The authors comment that possible reasons for the sex-differences in the incidence of suicidal thoughts and suicide may be the differing patterns of help-seeking in men and women or use of more lethal methods by men.
