Suicide attempts were associated to more depressive symptoms but fewer negative symptoms at first episode, and to number of admissions and to dependence on nicotine at follow-up in a logistic regression. Satisfaction with religion, health, family relations and safety at follow-up were inversely associated to attempting suicide but only satisfaction with religious belief remained after controlling for concurrent symptoms of anxiety and depression.
