Further, the study strived to find the relationship between the experimental and criterion variables. The study consists the sample of 259 AIDS patients selected through purposive sampling technique, out of 259 respondents 108 (41.7%) were male and 151 (58.3%) were female patients. Enriched Social Support Inventory developed by Mitchell et al.

For the statistical analysis of data Mean, t-test, one-way Anova and Pearson Correlation was applied by using SPSS20.0 version. The findings undercover that majority of patients have average level of suicidal ideations n=184(71.05%), followed by n=37(14.29%) having the high level, n=36(13.89%)very high level and n=2 (0.77%) having low of suicidal ideation respectively.
