Case Report
Case report of an adolescent's suicide attempt through drug intoxication and nursing care
Suicide is a serious public health problem with increasing prevalence. It ranks fourth among the most common causes of death, especially in adolescents. The negative events they experience negatively affect the psychosocial health of adolescents and may lead them to suicide. The most common method used as a means of suicide is drug overdose. It is possible to prevent suicide by strengthening psychosocial support systems, early intervention programs and increasing access to mental health services. This case report aims to provide guiding information for necessary nursing care by focusing on the experiences of an adolescent who attempted suicide.
