Suicidal persons generally fall into two groups. Interpersonal suiciders manifest frequent threats & attempts, are emotionally labile, have ill-defined suicide plans and clear ideas as to how their crises might be resolved. Intrapersonal suiciders are less open in manifestations of suicidal drive, withdrawn, often have clearly-formulated suicide plans & do not have ideas as to how their crises might end. Treatment should be based on restoration/replacement of lost objects & self esteem.(SIEC)
