The relationship between the stress-coping levels of students studying at Mugla University Health School, and their likelihood of committing crime to help them cope more effectively with stress generators and the number of suicide attempts reduced was explored. Participants were 350 students studying to be nurses and health officers and they completed the information form developed by the researcher. The questionnaire consisted of a Personal Information Form, Stress-Coping Styles Scale (SCSS), and Suicide Probability Scale (SPS). A significant relationship was found to exist between gender, department at the school, class, education level of the mother, existence of a person among the family members with a suicidal history, place of residence in Mugla, sources of stress, level of satisfaction about the students’ department, and stress-coping levels and probability of committing suicide.
