96 patients with recent-onset schizophrenia were rated every 2 weeks for 1 year to examine the temporal course of suicidal ideation & suicide attempts, & the extent to which anxiety, depression, & mild suicidal ideation were followed by significant suicide ideation or a suicide attempt. The severity of suicidality changed rapidly. Low levels of suicidal ideation increased the risk for significant suicidal ideation or a suicide during the subsequent 3 months. (28 refs.)
