The aim of the study was to determine the prevalence of psychiatric and personality disorders in survivors following their first suicide attempt. Three hundred and fortyone survivors who received treatment from the various medical wards of a general hospital participated in the study. ICDIO psychiatric disorders were diagnosed in 47.2% of the cases. The most common diagnosis was depressive episode (31 %). Only 7 % qualified for a diagnosis of personality disorder. A significant proportion of patients (52..8%) did not suffer from any identifiable ICD- 10 psychiatric disorder.
