In this letter to the editor, the authors report on their study of social skills in a group of bipolar patients with a past history of suicide attempts. Results suggested that outpatients with bipolar disorder I with a history of suicide attempts present inhibited behaviour in relation to other people & their environment. Further studies may verify if social skills deficits are associated with risk factors that may lead to higher suicidality in bipolar patients. (3 refs.)
