dc.description.abstractSelf-poisoning is the main form of attempted suicide in Singapore. A psychiatric investigation was carried out in 100 consecutive referrals of self-poisoning cases. There were 30 males and 70 females. The modal age group was 20-29 years, which accounted for 43 percent. The main causative factors were interpersonal problems (58%), mainly resulting from quarrels with spouse, partner of family members, followed by illness (13%), schizophrenia (7%), insomnia (7%), work problems (7%), and financial problems (6%). Case illustrations were given for the main categories.
