Nancy Osgood states that we know much less about suicide in the elderly than in any other age group. She explores the nature & extent of suicide among the elderly, compares self-destructive behaviour in the old to that of the young, and discusses the demographics of the aged population at risk. Four types of clues to elderly suicide – verbal, behavioral, situational, & syndromatic – are examined. (NBB)
