Kelleher discusses the relationship of depression & suicide, noting that not all people who are depressed are suicidal & vice versa. The effects of antidepressants, i.e. fluoxetine, upon suicidality are also discussed. He agrees with Mann (1991) that there is no clear relationship between the emergence of suicidal thoughts/behaviour & fluoxetine treatment. Kelleher says that if suicide among patients seeing doctors is to be reduced, suicidal intent must be assessed independently of depression.
