Abstract
Background: Suicide is a leading cause of death globally. Yet, suicide is preventable, according to the American Psychiatric Association.

Aims and Objectives: The study aimed to evaluate the awareness of the psychiatric hospital staff in Bahrain toward suicidal behavior.

Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional, questionnaire-based study was carried out in a psychiatric hospital among staff.

Results: A remarkable result showed that nearly 95% of the population is willing to help and prevents suicide. Moreover, 73% were very comfortable to guide someone who is having suicidal thoughts to a physician. On the other hand, 12% were uncomfortable. Furthermore, respondents were interested in learning how they could help people who have suicidal thoughts with a result of 100%.

Conclusion: The psychiatric hospital staff showed a supportive attitude toward suicidal patients and great interest in improving their skills to deal with such critical situations. On the other hand, suicide prevention awareness programs need to be expanded. As the suicide rate increases, it becomes even more important to spread awareness.

Key words: Bahrain; Psychiatry; Suicide Prevention; Self Harm
