Deaths among child and adolescent psychiatric patients

Deaths among child and adolescent psychiatric patients ABSTRACT– Of 1,206 patients treated during the period 1970–1980 in a department of child psychiatry in a large city in Sweden 24 (2 %) (14 boys and 10 girls) had died by the end of 1981. Twenty‐one of these (88 %) died of ‘“injuries following external violence and poisoning”, of whom 15 (63 %) were suicides. Twenty subjects (83 %) had grown up in surroundings characterised by one or more psychosocial stress factors. The study indicates a possible link between psycho‐social background factors and deaths from “injuries following external violence and poisoning”. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica Wiley

Abstract

ABSTRACT– Of 1,206 patients treated during the period 1970–1980 in a department of child psychiatry in a large city in Sweden 24 (2 %) (14 boys and 10 girls) had died by the end of 1981. Twenty‐one of these (88 %) died of ‘“injuries following external violence and poisoning”, of whom 15 (63 %) were suicides. Twenty subjects (83 %) had grown up in surroundings characterised by one or more psychosocial stress factors. The study indicates a possible link between psycho‐social background factors and deaths from “injuries following external violence and poisoning”.
