Reduce risk of suicide after psychiatric hospitalizations with a follow-up visit.

Reduce risk of suicide after psychiatric hospitalizations with a follow-up visit.

This study just published in JAMA found that a follow up mental health visit within 7 days of release from psychiatric hospitalization for suicidal ideation was associated with a reduced rate of suicide among children and adolescents. More than 40% of the children and adolescents in this sample did not receive a timely follow up mental health visit, possibly because they were resistant to mental health treatment in some instances involving adolescent self harm, or due to the lack of a mental health diagnosis or past mental health treatment, or because they were served in managed care, or due to race ( Black youth were less likely to receive a follow up visit).
