This study explored the impact of mental illness among patients with migraine. The authors performed MedLine & PsycINFO searches from 1980-2008. Research has systematically documented a strong bidirectional association between migraine & psychiatric disorders. The relationship between migraine & psychopathology has often been clinically discussed rather than systematically studied. Future research should include sound methodologically-based studies focusing on the interplay of factors behind the relationship between migraine, suicide risk, & mental illness. (134 refs.)
