[Psychological autopsies in the study of suicide].

Abstract

Psychological autopsies represent an essential method in the study of suicide and its determinisms. They are difficult to realize but a growing number of them have shown that a large majority of the suicide victims were suffering from mental disorders. Many of them had seen a doctor in the days or weeks preceding the suicide.
