Methods: Retrospectively, we evaluated records of 1,166 patients from major mood disorder, that were treated in last 5 years in 3 major private out patient offices in Prague participating in the program of center for treatment of mood disorders. Results: In 428 patients 36.7% treated for single depressive episode we found 14 suicidal attempts SA, 4 completed suicides CS, in 625 patients 53.6% treated for periodic depressive disorder we found 43 SA and 11 CS, in 113 patients with bipolar affective disorder we found 22 SA and 6 CS. In our sample 3.3% of patients with single depressive attempted suicide, 0.93% committed suicide; 6.9% of periodically depressed patients attempted suicide, 1.76% committed suicide; 19.5% of bipolar patients attempted suicide, 5.31 committed suicide. The differences of prevalence of SA and CS among all three groups of patients were statistically significant (from p‹0.05 to p<0.001.) Conclusion: Statistically the highest risk for suicidal attempt and completed suicide was in patients, suffering from bipolar affective disorder, lowest in patients treated for single depressive episode.
