Objectives: Suicidal behavior in children under 10 years of age is a warning and a matter of concern. It can be an important indicator for evaluating the mental health of individuals in the community. 
Case Report: This study reported an 8-year-old boy who had three failed suicide attempts by hanging. The psychiatric assessment revealed that he had major depressive disorder which had not been diagnosed.
Conclusion: Evaluation of his behavior by using the Child Behavior Checklist completed by his parents showed that he had the highest scores in aggressive behavior, attention problems, rule-breaking behavior, and anxious/depressed subscales. Lack of parental attention to meeting the needs and creating a supportive environment may have led to behavioral-emotional disorders and risky behaviors such as suicide in the boy.
