Background: Suicide is a phenomenon that has plagued mankind for many years from traditional relationships to complex urban relationships today and in the ups and downs of social developments, it has hurt the hearts and souls of families and society. Suicide as a behavior is a death committed by oneself.
Method: The present study is a descriptive-analytical cross-sectional study. The sample includes all clients of the emergency center of Imam Khomeini Hospital in Noor city and forensic medicine in the province from 2017 to 2020. By completing a questionnaire in the hospital and being visited by an emergency physician and following up with psychologists in the health network, suicide attempts of these clients have been confirmed. Data were analyzed using Spss software.
Results: The results showed that in the years 2017-2020, more than half (67-73%) of those who attempted suicide were women and included age groups between 15-34 years (44-45%) of which about (51-62%) are married and (53-56%) are in urban areas motivated by family problems and disputes; And they attempted suicide by the predominant method of drug poisoning.
Conclusion: The findings show that the number of suicide attempts is increasing and the number of married women who have attempted suicide is significant, which indicates the need to increase education in communication and life skills and it may be possible to program people's access to controlled drugs.
