This study compared personality characteristics of subjects with dependence disorders who had previously made a suicide attempt. The population, recruited in France, Belgium, & Switzerland, was composed of 570 subjects. Their psychological dimensions were investigated by means of several self-report questonnaires. For most dimensions, repeat attempters, both past & recent but more specifically the recent repeaters, had a more severe psychological profile compared to the other suicide attempters. (41 refs.)
