Abstract
The objective of this study was to investigate associations between suicidal intent and psychiatric symptoms, and to study the usefulness of the Suicidal Intent Scale (SIS) and the Comprehensive Psychopathological Rating Scale (CPRS) for suicide risk assessment in an inpatient population. One hundred and ninety-six suicide attempters, of whom 15 eventually committed suicide, were admitted to a psychiatric ward. They were assessed by means of the SIS and the CPRS. Cox regression analyses were performed in order to adjust the relationships between the individual CPRS subscales and suicide for age and gender. The patients who later completed suicide had higher scores on the CPRS than the patients who did not complete suicide. We found no... (More)

Cox regression analyses were performed in order to adjust the relationships between the individual CPRS subscales and suicide for age and gender. The patients who later completed suicide had higher scores on the CPRS than the patients who did not complete suicide. We found no associations between symptoms and suicidal intent. The severity of psychopathology, in terms of high CPRS scores, shows a stronger association with future suicide than the level of suicidal intent (SIS) among inpatient suicide attempters. Suicidal intent is evidently scored regardless of psychiatric symptoms. (Less)
