Background and Objectives: The Covid-19 pandemic has caused the death anxiety to be increased. Due to the role of death anxiety in attempting suicide, the present case study aimed at investigating the effect of death anxiety caused by the Covid-19 on the suicide attempt.
Case report: The present study was a case report in which a 34-year-old man was studied after a suicide attempt. Since death anxiety is one of the main axes of the originality approach, the variables of this approach were examined. The patient’s life history was also investigated.
Conclusion: The results showed that the patient in all areas including death anxiety, loneliness, freedom, and meaning of life carries problems that he has always been unaware of their existence. Covid-19 has revealed them all to him at once. The patient carried out suicide due to the inability to cope with these anxieties. Also, a study of the patient's life history showed that he has ignored his existence from an early age and has been a victim of his parents' wishes. The patient has had a strong desire to control, anticipate, and plan for the future since childhood, and Covid-19 has taken them all away. By designing existential variables, it was confirmed that he has never had a meaning in life and always ignored himself. He also expressed a desire to become more familiar with the approach to the originality of existence and to begin to know oneself.
