ABSTRACT
Around a million people commit suicide, and at least 10 times this number attempt suicide, worldwide every year. No nationwide epidemiological studies have been undertaken in India but a significant rise in suicides has been observed in Kashmir in recent years. This study was carried out on patients reporting to the Government SMHS Hospital in Srinagar with a history of suicidal poisoning.
