Elderly suicide and weather conditions: is there a link?

Author:
SALIB Emad
Journal article citation:
International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, 12(9), September 1997, pp.937-941.
Publisher:
Wiley-Blackwell

Studies on the effect of meteorological factors on suicide have yielded inconclusive and often contradictory results. This article examines the effect of weather conditions on suicide rate in an elderly population in North Cheshire. Concludes that weather may influence suicide in the elderly, probably interacting with biological and social variables. The rate of reported suicide appears to be positively related to fine weather conditions, during early summer, and not to extreme weather conditions as previously reported. Method of death also appears to be associated with weather conditions.

The author compares the practice of geriatric psychiatry among the three countries: Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States. Reviews how the practice of geriatric psychiatry is carried out, and the mental health services available in each country, including organisational characteristics. Findings suggest the USA is the most entrepreneurial of the three, Britain's greatest strength is the uniformity and comprehensiveness of its services, and Ireland provides an excellent model for nations of comparable size. Also found that considerable change is occurring in all three countries.
