  1. Temporal fluctuations in suicide calls to a crisis intervention service.

    Article - En anglais

    Suicide-related calls received by a crisis intervention center were analyzed for temporal variations.

    The overall number of calls, calls concerning personal suicidal ideation, and calls concerning third-person suicide potential varied by both month and day, of the week.

    Ideation calls and calls involving a suicide attempt varied by day of the month.

    Month and day of the week variation in third-person calls paralleled variations in completed suicides.

    Fluctuations were large enough to be useful in scheduling crisis center staff.

    The possibility that third-person calls represent a greater suicide threat than first-person calls is discussed.
