This paper focuses on risk factors and clinical states associated with suicide in depressed women and the necessity for thorough clinical evaluation of family and personal histories of suicidal, impulsive, and violent behaviors. Treatment issues addressed include the importance and content of detailed communication to patients and their families, medication noncompliance, the risks associated with the recovery and other high-risk periods, and problems associated with the adjunctive use of alcohol and other drugs.
