Conceptually, suicide-related behavior can be explained to include a continuum of suicidal ideas or suicidal thoughts, to suicidal planning and, ultimately, Suicidal attempt and death by suicide. Suicide-related death is a mental health problem in many countries. Suicidal thoughts and behavior are caused by the interaction of various factors and in this respect; many theories have been built to better understand the development of thought and suicidal behavior. The purpose of the present study was to compare the dissociative experience, self-compassion, and perceived social support in suicidal and normal individuals. For this purpose, in a comparative study, 30 suicidal individuals were matched with 30 normal individuals without suicidal ideation in terms of age, gender, and marital status and after evaluating dissociative experience, self-compassion, and perceived social support, they were compared. Results of multivariate analysis of variance showed that there was a significant difference between the two groups of suicidal and normal individuals in terms of components of self-compassion, perceived social support and dissociative experience. Thus, it can be argued that higher dissociative experience, lower self-compassion and lower perceived social support may contribute to suicidal behavior.
