Suicide is liable for one percent of mortality and is one of the eight major causes of mortality. One of the planning factors of suicide is the psychiatric disorders, and two Internalizing and Externalizing problems have been found as the most significant psychiatric problems in suicide attempters. In this study, the prevalence of Internalizing and Externalizing in suicide attempters and their relationship with times number of suicide attempts and chance of suicide attempt in future were studied. Materials and Methods: In this study, 200 patients hospitalized for suicide were studied and a questionnaire was used to determine the prevalence of Internalizing and Externalizing among them. Also, times number of suicide attempt and chance of suicide reattempt in each patient were accounted. And their mean was compared between Internalizing and Externalizing groups and normal group. Results: Briefly, of 200 studied patients, 120 cases (60%) were inclined to Externalizing, 70 cases (35%) were inclined to Internalizing and 10 cases (5%) were normal. The times number of suicide attempt had no significant difference in Internalizing and Externalizing, and also in normal group. Though its mean was further in Externalizing group than in Internalizing group and further in the both groups than in normal group. The chance of suicide reattempt was significantly higher in Externalizing group than in Internalizing and higher in both groups than the normal group. Conclusion: Internalizing and Externalizing are commonly associated with the risk of suicide attempt. The risk of suicide attempt in Externalizing individuals is higher than in Internalizing people.
