This article discusses the association between 3 psychiatric disorders (anxiety disorder, depression, & alcohol dependence/abuse) & suicidal ideation in Swedish females in a one-year period. Face to face interviews were conducted on a stratified sample of 25-65 year old women. The diagnoses of the 3 psychiatric disorders were made according to Mental Disorders-III-Revised. When all 3 disorders were entered into a logistic regression model, only depressive disorders remained associated with past year suicidal ideation. (38 refs.) (AK)
