OBJECTIVE Suicidal behavior is highly prevalent in borderline personality disorder and major depressive episode, although the characteristics of suicide attempts in the two disorders are believed to differ. Comorbidity of borderline personality disorder and major depressive episode may obscure characteristics of suicide attempts that are uniquely related to the psychopathology of each disorder. We compared suicidal behavior in patients with borderline personality disorder, major depressive… Expand
Recurrent suicide attempts in patients with depressive and anxiety disorders: the role of borderline personality traits.
BACKGROUND The presence of a comorbid borderline personality disorder (BPD) may be associated with an increase of suicidal behaviors in patients with depressive and anxiety disorders. The aim of thisExpand
Assessing the contribution of borderline personality disorder and features to suicide risk in psychiatric inpatients with bipolar disorder, major depression and schizoaffective disorder
TLDR
Overall, among patients with severe mood disorders, the presence of comorbid BPD features or disorder appears to substantially increase the risk of suicide attempts. Expand
Comparison of the Suicidal Behavior of Adolescent Inpatients with Borderline Personality Disorder and Major Depression
TLDR
It is concluded that the nature of suicidal behavior in adolescents with BPD differs from that seen in MDD with respect to the role of anger and aggression. Expand
Interpersonal precipitants and suicide attempts in borderline personality disorder.
TLDR
The differences between groups suggest that risk assessment and treatment should target both depression and personality disorder in those with combined illness. Expand
Sex differences in clinical predictors of suicidal acts after major depression: a prospective study.
TLDR
It is suggested that the importance of risk factors for suicidal acts differs in depressed men and women and this knowledge may improve suicide risk evaluation and guide future research on suicide assessment and prevention. Expand
Comorbid panic disorder as an independent risk factor for suicide attempts in depressed outpatients.
TLDR
It is suggested that comorbid panic disorder in patients with major depressive disorder may be associated with a more severe burden of illness and may independently increase the likelihood of suicide attempt. Expand
Posttraumatic stress disorder comorbid with major depression: factors mediating the association with suicidal behavior.
TLDR
PTSD is frequently comorbid with major depressive episode, and their co-occurrence enhances the risk for suicidal behavior, and cluster B personality disorder was the only independent variable related to lifetime suicide attempts in a multiple regression model. Expand
Suicidal behavior in borderline personality disorder: prevalence, risk factors, prediction, and prevention.
TLDR
Clinicians must avoid the mistake of thinking that a pattern of repeated attempts indicates little desire to die, because BPD is frequently complicated by suicidal behavior. Expand
Clinical features and psychiatric comorbidities of borderline personality disorder patients with versus without a history of suicide attempt
TLDR
BPD patients with a history of suicide attempt are more aggressive, affectively dysregulated and less narcissistic than BPD suicide non-attempters. Expand
Borderline personality disorder and adolescent suicide attempt: the mediating role of emotional dysregulation
TLDR
The results suggest that emotional dysregulation has a mediating role in suicide attempts among BPD adolescents and call for the development of interventions targeting the role of emotion dysregulation in effectively predicting and preventing suicidality in borderline adolescents. Expand

Risk factors for suicidal behavior in borderline personality disorder.
TLDR
Risk factors for suicidal behavior in patients with borderline personality disorder include older age, prior suicide attempts, antisocial personality, impulsive actions, and depressive moods but not comorbid affective disorder, alcoholism, or drug use disorders. Expand
Characteristics of borderline personality disorder associated with suicidal behavior.
TLDR
Impulsivity was the only characteristic of borderline personality disorder that was associated with a higher number of previous suicide attempts after control for lifetime diagnoses of depression and substance abuse, and the association between childhood abuse and number of lifetime suicide attempts is consistent with the hypothesis that childhood abuse is an etiological factor in the development of self-destructive behaviors. Expand
Suicidal behavior in patients with major depression and comorbid personality disorders.
TLDR
It is concluded that patients with BPD symptomatology are at risk for serious suicide attempts and severity of comorbid Cluster B PD psychopathology should be considered when assessing suicide risk in MDD patients even in those without a PD diagnosis. Expand
History of suicidal behavior in depressed borderline inpatients.
TLDR
Most patients diagnosed as having borderline personality disorder continued to fulfill criteria for this diagnosis even when suicide attempts were excluded as a diagnostic criterion, indicating that borderline patients had more complicated courses than the other depressed patients. Expand

TLDR
Male patients who killed themselves showed a more extensive suicidal behavior at admission than did their matched control subjects, and DIB profiles differed only with respect to slightly higher scores on the affect section among patients who committed suicide. Expand
Adolescent suicide attempts.
TLDR
The conditions of 40 adolescents in treatment following a suicide attempt were diagnosed according to the multiaxial classification of the American Psychiatric Association's proposed third edition of the diagnostic and statistical manual and the typical patient was a polydrug-abusing girl with a borderline personality disorder and a superimposed major depressive disorder. Expand
The longitudinal pattern of suicidal behaviour in borderline personality disorder: a prospective follow‐up study
TLDR
BPD patients with a history of suicide attempts were more suicidal at index admission, continued to be so over the follow‐up period and differed systematically in an unfavourable direction from other BPD patients on the major outcome measures. Expand
Clinical assessment versus research methods in the assessment of suicidal behavior.
TLDR
A significant degree of past suicidal behavior is not recorded during routine clinical assessment, and the use of semistructured screening instruments may improve documentation and detection of lifetime suicidal behavior. Expand
Time-related predictors of suicide in major affective disorder.
TLDR
The authors studied 954 psychiatric patients with major affective disorders and found that nine clinical features were associated with suicide, drawing attention to the importance of standardized prospective data for studies of suicide, assessment of short-term suicide risk factors, and anxiety symptoms as modifiable Suicide risk factors within a clinically relevant period.

Major depression and the risk of attempted suicide.
TLDR
The first 3 months after the onset of an MDE and the first 5 years after the lifetime onset of major depressive disorder represented the highest-risk period for attempted suicide, independent of the severity or duration of depression. Expand
