"This study is a report full of pearls for psychiatrists and families," said Myrna Weissman, Ph.D., in an interview with Psychiatric News. She is a professor of epidemiology and psychiatry at the College of Physicians and Surgeons and the School of Public Health at Columbia University and chief of the Department in Clinical-Genetic Epidemiology at New York State Psychiatric Institute. Her editorial on the study will appear in the April AJP. "It is very elegantly designed."
"It's an important paper because it addressed many problems that people have been concerned about in suicidal ideation in adolescents," Weissman said.
