A Serious Suicide Attempt Causing Brain Damage?

Georgios Mikellides

This is an interesting case of a serious suicidal attempt of a patient and his care pathway that followed his management by different teams, the use of the mental health act 1983 and the difficulties faced by health professionals in managing this case in London busiest hospitals. A 22-year-old Turkish man is discussed who attempted to hang himself on the 25th May in front of his girlfriend with a belt, using the bed bars following an argument with her and he was intoxicated with alcohol. This case raises important issues and highlights the difficulties of assessing and offering treatment to patients with personality disorders as they present with impulsive and dangerous behaviours which can lead to their own death.
