We investigated the relationship between depression, suicide risk, and related nutrient intakes in 50-60 year old Korean osteoarthritis patients. In the $6^{th}$ National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 4,112 people who have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis by a doctor were analysed. Anxiety and depression level, pain and discomport level, depressive mood and suicidal ideation were significantly higher in osteoarthritis group compared to the non-osteoarthritis group(p<0.05). Dietary intake of energy, protein, n-3 and n-6 fatty acids, calcium, phosphate, thiamin, riboflavin, and niacin were significantly higher in the normal group compared with all the osteoarthritis, depression and suicidal ideation groups(p<0.05). The presented convergence strategy would be applied for emotional health and health care improvement of osteoarthritis patients.
