We are working in a medical article related to “intento suicida” and I would like to know how to say that in English. I think that a way could be: "suicidal attempt". Those words appear also linked to the term: "suicidal behavior". Thanks for every thing,

    More context would help as it really depends on what you are trying to say. For example

    suicidal intention = to have motivation or a plan with a purpose of committing suicide,
    suicidal ideation = thinking about/contemplating committing suicide
    suicidal attempt (attempted suicide) = an attempt to end ones own life
    suicidal behavior = could include various self-harming behaviors, attempted suicide
