About the Sheehan & Giddens Phenotypic Suicidality Disorders Classification and Criteria

The Sheehan & Giddens classification of suicidality disorders is a phenotypic classification, in contrast to a genotypic classification.  It is a classification based on currently available composites of the clinically observable symptoms, signs, behaviors, development, family history, course of illness, and response to treatment.  Each suicidality disorder class / phenotype should be a predictive cluster, like the disorders in DSM-5, with specific diagnostic criteria for each, with a structured diagnostic interview that can guide the clinician in assigning subjects to each diagnostic class. The Sheehan & Giddens suicidality disorders classification is based on phenomenological observations of suicidal patients and the mining of datasets of suicidal patients over time.  It will inevitability be improved with better evidence and by trial and error.

There are 12 different suicidality disorder phenotypes in the Sheehan & Giddens classification:

  1. Impulse Attack Suicidality Disorders
  2. Homicidal Suicidality Disorders
  3. Psychotic Suicidality Disorders
  4. Obsessive Compulsive Suicidality Disorders
  5. PTSD Suicidality Disorders
  6. Eating Disorder / Malabsorption Suicidality Disorders
  7. Substance Induced Suicidality Disorders
  8. Medical Illness / Neurological Condition Induced Suicidality Disorders
  9. Anxiety Disorder Induced Suicidality Disorders
  10. Mood Disorder Induced Suicidality Disorders
  11. Life Event Induced Suicidality Disorders
  12. Suicidality Disorders, Not Elsewhere Classified

Structured Diagnostic Interview for the Sheehan & Giddens Phenotypic Suicidality Disorders Classification and Criteria

The diagnostic criteria for our phenotypic suicidality disorders classification are operationalized in the Suicidality Disorders Module of the Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview (MINI Module Z).  This module can be used as an add on to the standard MINI.  This Suicidality Disorders Module (Module Z) contains 12 sections.  The questions in each section guide the clinician in eliciting information about the diagnostic criteria for each suicidality disorder phenotype.
