Mental Disorders and Suicidal Intention.
Litman, Robert E.
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v17 n2 p85-92 Sum 1987
Explores use of psychological autopsies to clarify intention in suicide. Compares clinical experience with courtroom experience. Discusses the "decriminalization" of suicide and insurance concerns, mental disorders, and intention to commit suicide. Notes that capacity to have the intent to commit suicide is lost due to mental disorders only under special and unique circumstances. (Author/NB)
