Suicide Risk is Higher in Denmark

The number of psychiatric patients who, after psychiatric treatment, end up killing themselves is 18 times higher in Denmark than in Sweden.

This is evident from a new study of psychiatry in the Nordic countries, which has been made for the Nordic Council.

President of the Danish Medical Association Mads Koch Hansen is shocked by the difference.

– It is difficult to witness that two otherwise comparable countries like Sweden and Denmark have so noticeably different suicide rates for psychiatric patients, he says to Information.
