This study aims the analysis of 370 suicide events from the sociological and cultural perspectives which happened between 2007 and 2008 in Ad2yaman. According to this study; among the young people who attempted to suicide, the 296 young people (80%) are women and 74(20%) are men. Age range changes mostly between 15 and 24. Suicide’s being attempted mostly by “young women” has been made the impression that “custom murders” have been changed into “custom suicides”. Suicides generally have been come into being from domestic reasons like family pressure, domestic violence, communication problems (including forced marriage) and attack. Most of young people haven’t had any suicide attempt before (80.8%) and some haven’t had any psychological illness either (64.9%). It has been known that the factors of any social phenomenon are also social. Moreover, individuals have had depressions for some reasons such as foundations which have responsibility for carrying out main social functions do not follow new conditions and they do not learn and explain the changes that happened.
