Suicide attempts in people with schizophrenia before and after participating in an intensive case managed community program: a 20-year follow-up - D íaz-Fernández S, Frías-Ortiz DF, Fernández-Miranda JJ.

Lack of treatment compliance in patients with schizophrenia is a risk factor that leads to illness-relapse, hospitalization and potentially strengthens suicidal behavior. The purpose of this investigation was to assess treatment adherence, reasons for trea...

We all have an idea in our heads of what a mass shooter looks like. But how accurate is it? Does anyone actually know? Who would you trust to find out? Is there any data on this? Well, now there is. The National Council on Behavioral Health has recently completed a comprehensive report, “Mass Violence in America: Causes, Impacts, and Solutions.” Listen in as our host interviews the medical director of the National Council for an in-depth explanation of what this exhaustive document has revealed.

Five years from now, the U.S.’ already overburdened mental health system may be short as many as 15,600 psychiatrists as the growth in demand for their services outpaces supply, according to a 2017 report from the National Council for Behavioral Health. But some proponents say that, by then, an unlikely tool—artificial intelligence—may be ready to help mental health practitioners mitigate the impact of the deficit. Medicine is already a fruitful area for artificial intelligence; it has shown promise in diagnosing disease, interpreting images and zeroing in on treatment plans. Though psychiatry is in many...

Abstract Many studies suggest that the hippocampus is involved in the pathophysiology of psychiatric disorders, especially major depressive disorder (MDD) and schizophrenia. Especially, in vivo imaging studies indicate that the volume of hippocampus may be reduced in both disorders. Moreover, suicide may have a unique neurobiology. The aim of the present study is to investigate if depression, schizophrenia or suicide is associated with reduced postmortem volume of the hippocampal formation and/or changes in the numbers of neurons and/or glial cells in the different subregions of the hippocampus. We studied postmor...

This study aimed to find the potential association betweenHSPA1B polymorphisms and risk of paranoid schizophrenia, clinical variables of the disease, and suicidal behavior. A total of 901 unrelated Polish subjects of Caucasian origin (377 schizophrenia patients and 524 controls) were recruited. Four single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) were genotyped using PCR –RFLP (rs539689, rs9281590) and TaqMan assays (rs263979, rs6547452). A strong tendency towards statistical significance (p = 0.051) was observed in rs539689 allele distribution between patients and controls in overall study subjects. After strati...

ConclusionsThe limited literature showed that resilience is important in understanding suicidal thoughts and behaviours in people with schizophrenia diagnoses. There is a need for prospective research that investigates moderating effects of psychological resilience in the pathways to suicidal thoughts and behaviours in people with schizophrenia diagnoses.Practitioner pointsNovel evidence for four psychological constructs which may confer resilience to suicidal thoughts and behaviours in people with schizophrenia diagnoses.Strong evidence for the impact of perceived social support and appraisals of personal skills and attri...
