Self-harm in Older People With Depression: Comparison of Social Factors, Life Events and Symptoms
Dennis M~~Wakefield P~~et al.
An examination of social factors, life events, hopelessness & other depression symptoms in a group of 48 older people with depression referred following an episode of self-harm compared with 50 similarly aged people with depression who had no history of self-harm. The groups were similar in many respects, although those in the self-harm group were more likely to have a poorly integrated social network & were more hopeless. (LC) (16 refs)
