Communication of Suicidal Ideation in a Walk-In Clinic.
Eisenthal, Sherman
One hundred and fifteen patients coming to a psychiatry walk-in clinic were evaluated for suicidal ideation prior to their intake interview. Sixty percent of the patients had suicidal ideation, 20% to an extreme degree. Recognition of suicidal ideation, based on a content analysis of the clinical chart, was 27% for the entire group and 56% for the extreme group, and was not related to the intensity of symptoms nor to requests for control.
