Abstract

Prevalence of suicide attempts and their relationship with DIS anxiety and affective disorder diagnoses were investigated in a Hungarian adult community sample. Despite the high suicide mortality rate, the rate of suicide attempts was similar to that reported in other studies using similar methods. Suicide attempts occurred more frequently among women and previously married persons. Although the presence of any lifetime anxiety and/or affective disorder increased the rate of reported suicide attempts, the effect of co-morbidity, recurrence and chronicity might be considered significant predictors. The highest odds of an attempt were related to the diagnoses of dysthymic or bipolar disorders. Agitation was the only depressive symptom, which increased the odds of a suicide attempt.
