According to one of the psychiatrists, “We suggest that poor subjective sleep quality may therefore represent a useful screening tool and a novel therapeutic target for suicide prevention in late life.”

Despite the treatment for comorbid depression, the researchers experienced an increase of 20% risk of suicides in those patients. Dr. Bernert of Stanford University wrote in his studies; “Targeting disturbed sleep as a visible warning sign of suicide may, in this way, constitute a novel opportunity for improved risk detection; this more narrowed, the demographic focus may specifically inform intervention among a group at heightened risk for suicide.”
