Six Year Follow-up of Health Status Changes in Danish Adults With Suicide Tendency in 1994
Norlev J~~Davidsen M~~et al.
This study determined whether suicidal ideation &/or suicide attempts have any long-term health effects. The relationship between suicidal thoughts &/or a previous suicide attempt in 1994 & the presence of suicidal ideation in 2000 was analyzed. It was found that health status in 1994 differed between the groups with & without suicidal ideation or a previous suicide attempt & that the differences persisted after 6 years. People who had suicidal ideation or a suicide attempt in 1994 had a significantly greater risk of having suicidal ideation in 2000 than people who had not. (23 refs)
