After an introduction to the fundamental structure of suicidal tendencies, the frequency of suicidal behaviours is discussed in depth particularly among people with depression. Particular emphasis is placed upon the question of typical psychopathology as a high risk factor. It is seen that special importance is attributed to thoughts of worthlessness, guilt, despair, depressive delusional symptoms, inner restlessness & agitation, panic attacks, sleep disorders, & prior suicidal behaviour.
