In this study, multiple suicide attempters were placed into 1 of 2 treatment programs. The 1st group was offered regular & frequent out-patient appointments, & extensive emergency services were available. The 2nd group was offered routine follow-up; an out-patient appointment to see a psychiatrist &/or social worker. There was no difference in the number of attempts in the 6 month period, but in the 1st group, some female patients improved their social circumstances. (VM)
