This study used 3 groups, from a psychiatric hospital in Quebec, to investigate a population with suicide potential using tests to find indicators useful in the assessment of suicidal risk. Group A consisted of 50 patients who from February-May, 1965 attempted suicide in the hospital or were admitted to the hospital right after. Group T consisted of all patients who had threatened suicide in remarks to hospital staff during the 4-month period. Group C consisted of 30 patients routinely referred to the Psychology Department for testing but who had never attempted or threatened suicide. (6 refs)
