Objectives: This research was carried out to assess the personality traits, psychosocial stress, strategies of coping with stress, and religious attitudes of subjects who had attempted suicide and were referred to Imam Khomeini Hospital in the city of Kermanshah, and to compare them with the control group.

Method: The present study is a case-control study in which 120 subjects who had attempted suicide (75 females, 45 males) were compared with 120 subjects of the control group who were selected using con-venience sampling and were also demographically matched. Data were gathered using a demographic questionnaire, clinical interview, Eysenck Personality Questionnaire, Life Incidence Questionnaire, Coping Skills Questionnaire, and Religious Attitudes Questionnaire. The data were ana- lyzed via descriptive statistic methods, t-test, and c2. 

Results: Results indicated that in comparison with the control group, the subjects who had attempted suicide had more personally traits of introversion, neuroticism, and psychoticism, had experienced more stress- ful events before the suicide attempt, had a cognitively higher assess-ment of stressful life events, had used problem-centered coping less, and had less religious attitudes.

Conclusion: Suicide is caused by the interaction of some background and revealing factors.
