Abstract: Objective: To detect factors associated to previous suicide attempt among patients admitted to a general hospital who presented harmful alcohol drinking pattern. Method: 4.352 patients consecutively admitted were screened by means of the AUDIT (Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test) and HAD (Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale). Qui-squared tests and multiple logistic regression were performed. Results: 423 individuals presented alcohol harmful use or dependence (AUDIT ≥ 8), 60 (14.2%) of which had depression (HAD ≥ 8) and 34 (8%) previous suicide attempt. The latter was more frequent among young adults [odds ratio (OR) = 3.4], those who were depressed (OR = 6.6), had previously taken psychotropic medicines (OR = 7) and had AIDS (OR = 24). Conclusion: Our findings reinforce the need for detection and adequate treatment of conditions that, when together, strongly increase the suicide risk.
