Would a suicide attempt show up on a background check?

I am not looking for a job in security clearance or anything, just a normal job. I have been working my tail off in school to leave my current job. However, last year I had a melt down and was sent to the hospital. Is this going to show up? The cops came and picked me up but I wasn't arrested or anything...It seems useless to keep trying what I am doing if it will prevent me from getting a job.

Suicide is a crime-A felony. Attempting Suicide is a crime-A felony. The doctor/patient confidential relationship is voided if the person is considered dangerous to themselves or dangerous someone else.(remember the Mendez Brothers) Now that you understand that I can tell you it's highly doubtful this could ever show up on a normal background check. If, somewhere down the road, you are arrested for attempting suicide again it will appear on your judicial record-that is not on any check someone could make. your cool, LL

Its confidential. Its medical not criminal.

Nope, it will not. Unless you were admitted, not just taken to for observation for 72 hours or less, it would not even show up for a very high security clearance (although you are asked with those).

This will not show up on your record. P.S. Suicide is NOT worth it.

No. Attempted suicide is treated as a medical condition, so it is confidential.

A report was probably filed. It may be looked at depending if it pertains to the job you are applying for

no not a normal job but a high security job they will probably check it
