Abstract

Suicide attempt is a significant public health issue globally, and is one of the leading cause of rising death rates. The presence of a prior SA was regarded as the major threat factor for both non-fatal and lethal repeat of suicide attempt. The suicide attempt levels now account for one-third of all mental situations at psychiatric emergency departments (ED) and must be taken into consideration since assessment and suicide threat assessment are essential for the avoidance of potential suicides. ‘Suicide Attempt Repeaters’ are distinct from ‘non repeaters‘, by being mostly females, with past self-injuries and psychiatric hospitalizations, and visiting the Psychiatric Emergency Department after a recent suicide attempt Study aims to study and compare the profile of suicide repeaters and non-repeaters in the psychiatric emergency ward.

Keywords: Suicide ideation, Suicide attempt repetition, Suicide risk factors, Psychiatric emergency departments
