dc.description.abstractComments on the H. M. Inskip et al (see record 1998-00590-008) study on the lifetime risk of suicide for affective disorder, alcoholism, and schizophrenia. While Inskip et al propose that we revise the lifetime risk of suicide in patients with affective disorders from 15% to 6%, the current authors take this argument further, and suggest that this 6% mortality expectation should refer to patients from undefined catchment areas with 2 or more admissions for affective disorder.
