Just Released Study: Fallon-Lyme, Mental Disorders, and Suicidal Behaviors

In a study with lead author Dr. Brian Fallon, using Denmark’s National Patient Registry and Psychiatric Central Research Registry- including all persons living in Denmark from 1994-2016- the risk of mental disorders and suicides among all diagnosed with Lyme borreliosis was assessed. Those individuals with Lyme borreliosis had higher rates of any mental and affective disorders, and suicide attempts or deaths by suicide compared with those without Lyme.
