Psychologists Have Identified a Very Good Reason Why Unsolicited Advice Is So Annoying: Over the course of several studies, psychologists have found that while giving advice can seem (and often is) a kind and generous move, it 1) isn’t always selfless, and 2) can create a ...

Conclusions A history of suicidal ideation or behavior is common among US Veterans with SZ or BP, and specific demographic and clinical attributes correlate with variation in risk. These findings underscore the need for continuous monitoring for suicidal ideation and behavior in veteran populations with SMI, as well as the development of better risk predictions, including genomic factors. Although PTSD is a major current focus in veteran populations, the large number of veterans with SZ or BP and their high suicide risk suggests a greater clinical focus may be warranted.
