Six patients who died by suicide, from a total of 342 patients who were treated for acute spinal cord injury over a 5 year period are described. Clinical features shared by this group of patients included being male; having schizoid, depressive or narcissistic personality traits; alcohol or drug abuse; family or significant others favouring death as a preferred option; and the development of significant depression.||Gov't Doc #:||1630843||URI:||https://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/10036||DOI:||10.1038/sc.1992.56||Journal:||Paraplegia||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/1630843||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Acute Disease
