To describe patients' experiences of responding after a suicide attempt (English)
Abstract [en]

Suicide is a global public health problem that not only has an impact on the patient but also on many in the person's surrounding. In Sweden, approximately 1,200 people commit suicide each year, in addition to these, the dark number is greater as approximately 400 deaths cannot be determined. Suicide is the most common cause of death among younger men while the second most common among younger women. Committing a suicide attempt can be a cry for help after a long-term suffering that can be reflected in various contexts. Patients arrive in some form of emergency care unit after a suicide attempt in which the healthcare staff plays a major role in the care and suicide prevention.

The purpose of the study was to investigate how patients who have committed suicide attempts experience care. The study sheds light on patients' interactions with the staff after a attempted suicide as a feeling of powerlessness and the desire to be seen as a person. It turned out that a good relationship with the healthcare staff is of great importance for healing and relapse prevention.
