Extract

In Reply: On behalf of the author group, I thank Dr. Large for his comments on our article. Screening for suicide risk among patients with schizophrenia cannot be done accurately, and when viewed as a diagnostic test, the currently used screening tools perform rather poorly. Thus it is natural to question the role of systematic suicide risk assessment in modern psychiatry.
