Groups of patients with and without suicidal ideations; the level of their respective blood cholesterol was compared with one another .These subjects had been hospitalized with the diagnosis of schizophrenia (157 patients), bipolar (192 patients), major depression (68 patients), and other psychiatric disorders.
