A questionnaire was used to study suicidal feelings, attempted suicide & aspects of the work environment & well-being in Swedish psychiatric nursing personnel. Suicidal feelings “last year” were lower than in the general population, but suicidal feelings & attempted suicide “earlier than last year” were much more common, & 13% of respondents reported an earlier suicide attempt. No direct link was demonstrated between suicidality & work environment. Completed suicide was not investigated.
