In our country “Taiwan”. There were about 1.6 people per 10 thousand dead because of suicide in 2016. And the dead factor of Taiwanese, suicide was twelfth grade. This article will show my experience in psychiatric hospital about caring patients who had self-harmed or committed suicide. I read some literature from Taiwan or in different country and took this evidence of suicide factors and nursing intervention for patients. And I figured out that suicide factors are more about pressure. In my experience, the most reasons of suicide are that they can’t handle the situation or deal with the problem. As a psychiatric nurse, good skill of communication is necessary. I listen attentively, be Empathy and figure out the solution of problem with patients. The mood of patients will be stable, whether their problem can be solved or not, they can avoid having a suicide or self-harm idea. They will find a way to handle the situation.
