Investigated is the degree of concern psychiatrists have for research in the area of suicide. During a period of ten years 312 articles were yielded on depression, including 25 on suicide. Manuscripts on suicide are infrequently published, states the author, citing denials & rationalization as defence mechanisms used by clinicians who view suicide as a failure in diagnosis & treatment.
