The relationships between symptoms & both prior suicide attempts & current suicidal thinking were examined in a sample of 50 schizophrenics at 2 points in time. Subjects were assessed within 1 week of admission & 41 were reassessed at a 6-month follow-up. On admission, prior suicide attempts were associated with current depression & females. Current suicidal thinking was associated with depression at both times but also with negative symptoms at time 1 & delusions & hallucinations at time 2.
