Spousal suicide increases risk for mental disorders

March 22, 2017

Experiencing spousal suicide increased risk for mental and physical disorders, as well as social outcomes, such as more municipal support, according to recent findings.

“Studies have linked mental health outcomes to spousal suicide and evidence of an effect on physical and social health outcomes is lacking. Also, those bereaved by other causes of sudden death experience mental disorders,” Annette Erlangsen, PhD, of Danish Research Institute for Suicide Prevention, Copenhagen, and colleagues wrote. “To our knowledge, however, whether any aspects of loss by suicide are worse than bereavement in general remains unexamined.”
