Abstract

Two hundred and 25 unipolar depressives hospitalized during the 1930's were classified on the basis of documented communication of suicidal intent. A long term follow-up revealed 15 of the former patients had died by suicide. Communicated suicidal intent was documented in the index hospital record of all 15. The presence of communicated intent may distinguish a group of unipolar depressives at risk for suicide from those not at risk.
