Depression is the most frequent disorder among mental disorders, with frequent attacks, high suicidal risks, causing loss of labour-force, as well as to loss of serious physical and psycho-social skills, and also is economically and socially overcosting. The aim of nursing care for depression diagnosed patients is to provide security, to support their independence as much as possible, to help the patient rebuild the harmony at pre-diagnosis level, and to continue their well-being. This case applied to the hospital after an attempt to commit suicide, having continuous thoughts of suicide, guilt feelings, unhappiness, unwillingness, and was hospitalised with a diagnosis of medium depressive seizure. The patient was evaluated via nursing care model of Gordon's Functional Health Patterns on the second day of hospitalisation, and was diagnosed with 'Nutrition, imbalanced: less than body requirements, hopelessness, decrease in self-esteem, impaired social interaction, risk of self-harm, ineffective individual coping'. Nursing care was applied to the medication administered patient within the framework of nursing diagnosis. It was seen that the applied care provided positive support to the healing process of the patient.
