Attempted hospitalized suicide persons were entered into the study. Persons from villages or marginal area of Isfahan city in the supervision of health centers were divided to two groups randomly. WHO guideline was translated and revised according to situation of Iran. Then simple follow chart was designed. We integrated this protocol as a mental health pilot program to the health network of Isfahan province. The Behvarz (Primary health personnel) were educated several sessions about support and follow up of the patient. Intervention was done with telephone and verbally. Researcher visited the health house randomly. Intervention lasting 3 months; a control group was established prospectively without intervention. The outcome was measured by severity of suicidal ideation and repetition of suicide attempt.Finding: Mean score of suicidal ideation in intervention group before and after was19.8 and 10.5, that difference was statistically significant (P <0.001).
