TORO, Giovana Vidotto Roman et al. The desire to leave: a study about attempted suicide. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2013, vol.19, n.3, pp. 407-421. ISSN 1677-1168.

The objective of this study was to reflect, based upon a review of the available literature, upon the experience obtained while carrying out psychological treatment of patients hospitalized because of attempted suicide during a Residency in a Psychology Hospital. No specific cases were discussed, nor were the patients approached as participants in this study. The author's experience served as a backdrop for such reflections, which can be seen as a motivating factor for conducting a review of literature on the topic in question. The considerations pointed to the relevance of the topic of discussion among the team seeking an integrated service, global attention to the patient and the prevention of further suicide attempts.
