Suicide by psychiatrists: a study of medical specialists among 18,730 consecutive physician deaths during a five-year period, 1967-72.

Abstract

This report is of suicide by psychiatrists from 953 suicides in 18,730 consecutive deaths of U.S. physicians during a five-year period 1967-72. It demonstrates that psychiatrists suicide regularly, year-by-year, at rates about twice those expected; and these differences are statistically significant.
