Abstract

Susceptibility to suicide and suicidal ideation is a very serious issue in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD). There is much that is still unknown about the relationship between suicide, age, medical treatment and disease in the PD patient population. Depression is the most common psychiatric disturbance that affects people with PD. On multivariate analysis, severity of depression and psychosis were the only predictors of suicide or death ideation for PD patients.
