Migrant students experience various changes in their lives. Starting from cultural differences, separation from family, and also adaptation to the campus environment. The inability of students to adapt can have an impact on mental health problems such as suicide ideas. Low social support can be one of the factors that can lead to the idea of suicide in migrant students. This research was conducted to find the correlation between social support and suicide ideas among migrant students at Universitas Indonesia,, especially those from Central Java. The methodology of this research is correlative analytic research design with a cross sectional approach to 239 migrant students. The instrument in this study was Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support (MSPSS) questionnaire for sources of social support and the Suicide Ideation Scale (SSI) for suicide ideas. Data analysis used is univariate and bivariate analysis with gamma correlation test. The gamma correlation test is used to see whether there is a correlation and the strength of the correlation on two equal variables. The result of this research shows the significant correlation with medium strength between social support and suicide ideas among migrant students with a p value of 0,000 (p value ≤ 0.05, r=0,533). Mental health screening, health education, and increasing social support need to be done to maintain mental health status and prevent the suicide ideas problems among migrant students.
