How about the relationships between PTSD, depressivity and suicide related thoughts in Iranian Kurds?
(English)Manuscript (Other academic)
Our primary aim was to explore the relationships between PTSD, depressivity and suicide in Iranian Kurds (a relative homogeneous minority population in Iran) in order to contribute to the understanding of suicide in Muslim populations. A random sample of 1,000 individuals from the general population was investigated by means of questionnaires in a cross-sectional study. Only a very few of the Iranian Kurds reported suicide attempts; and suicide related variables were substantially more closely related to severe depressivity than to PTSD, resulting in direct paths from PTSD and depressivity to attitudes towards suicide only in contrast to results from Western countries.
