Parent's suicide attempt makes child's much more likely
from HealthDay News
When a parent has a history of attempting suicide, the odds of a suicide attempt in their child rises fivefold, compared to the offspring of people without such histories, a new study finds. Reporting in the Dec. 30, online edition of JAMA Psychiatry, researchers led by Dr. David Brent of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center tracked more than 700 young and adult-aged children of 334 parents with mood disorders, such as depression or bipolar disorder.
