The presuicidal syndrome is presented in this study with its prodromal symptoms which usually foresee suicide. 100 patients with a PS were investigated taking into consideration all specific risk factors. Three stages of PS were outlined. Interpretation of PS places it at the border between the clincial psychiatric fields and the ontological problems of humanity and leads to the understanding not only of the morbid psychic phenomenon in general and suicide in particular.
