The lifetime risk of suicide in patients with schizophrenia is estimated to be 4.9Ð13%. We found a lifetime suicide attempt rate of 7.9%.

Contrary to our hypothesis, there was no significant relationship between performance on the RBANS test and lifetime risk of suicide attempts in Han Chinese inpatients with schizophrenia.
