This paper represents an effort to validate the findings that individuals who meet the diagnostic criteria for panic disorder or panic attacks have a heightened risk of suicidal ideation or behaviour. The findings indicated the relative complexity and importance of diagnostic comorbidity among these suicidal subjects. Mean scores for suicidal ideation and hopelessness were greatest for patients with current comorbid primary mood disorder and panic disorder (34 refs.)
