Abstract

Based on an interview with the closest family member, using the Schedule of Affective Disorders and Schizophrenics - SADS, a retrospective psychiatric assessment and diagnostic classification was carried out on 200 completed suicides. Eighty-one per cent of the victims had a recent psychiatric disorder, in 63% depression. The prevalence of psychiatric illnesses was similar to that of other studies form countries with lower suicide rates.
