The cognitive triad and suicide intent in depressed in-patients.

Abstract

Daily ratings of self-esteem, hopelessness and suicide intent were made by senior psychiatric residents on 60 patients hospitalized for depression. Both hopelessness and low self-esteem correlated highly with suicide intent and both contributed independently to suicide intent. This suggested that self-esteem may be important in the development of suicide intent as well as hopelessness.
