Suicidal Behaviors Questionnaire-Revised (SBQ-R)

The brief 4-item SBQ-R is a measure of past suicidal thoughts and attempts which have proved to be significant predictors of future suicidality. The items ask if the respondent has ever thought about or attempted suicide, how frequent were suicidal thoughts in the past year, have they told someone about such thoughts, and what is the likelihood of attempting suicide in the future. The higher the obtained score reflects the higher risk for subsequent suicidal behavior.
