Abstract: © 2019 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Purpose: To identify predictors for 12-month suicide attempt from general psychiatric outpatients. Design and Methods: A case-control study compared 55 cases of suicide attempt within the previous 12 months matched for age and sex with 55 nonsuicidal cases. All were interviewed for psychiatric and personality disorder (PD) diagnoses using a DSM-IV-TR diagnostic interview. Findings: Factors associated with suicide attempt included depressive disorders (odds ratio [OR] = 4.62) and borderline PD (OR = 8.99). Practical Implications: More attention should be paid to identifying PD especially borderline PD in suicidal attempters, and further study of modifiable factors associated with depression and borderline PD is encouraged.
