Systematic review of risk factors for suicide in schizophrenia and bipolar (manic depressive) disorder

 

We have carried out a study to bring together findings from the worldwide literature on risk factors for suicide in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. This will provide valuable information for clinicians undertaking risk assessment. The study was funded by South East Region NHSE Research and Development Committee.
