Suicidality Correlates With Quality of Life Rating

This study tested the hypotheses (1) middle aged and older patients with schizophrenia, depressive symptoms and suicidality would exhibit worse quality of life and worse everyday functioning, social skills and medication management relative to those without suicidality; (2) higher levels of suicidality would be significantly associated with worse functioning, worse quality of life and older age.

It showed only quality of life scores predicted suicidality, but not performance skills, social skills, nor medication management skills.
