Assessing suicide risk
“Suicide risk assessment: Questions that reveal what you really need to know” (Current Psychiatry, July 2004) points out the critical information psychiatrists need to obtain from the patient and from the suicide gesture’s circumstances to determine the true risk.
The article by Dr. Rajnish Mago and colleagues was to-the-point and based on real issues. Thank you for publishing such a useful article.
