198 suicide attempters admitted to the medical wards were studied in regard to the frequency of attempts, their age & sex distribution, relationship between abdominal pain & suicide attempts, psychiatric illnesses as a cause for suicidal behavior & immediate mortality from suicide. A follow-up study on these & an earlier series of patients was conducted to assess the mortality from subsequent suicidal attempts & also the risk of unsuccessful reattempts.
