This study tested 412 Greek military draftees at the time of recruitment & 50 days later. Screening tests found that suicidal ideation was present in 17% of the sample, & this was correlated with the severity of hopelessness, depression, introverted hostility & hypomania. Fifty days later, ideation was present in 9%, & was correlated with hopelessness & introverted hostility, but not with psychopathic deviation. Only 11 draftees reported ideation after 50 days. (VM)
