The Suicide Behaviors Questionnaire–Revised

 The Suicide Behaviors Questionnaire-Revised

 (SBQ-R; Cole, 1988; Osman et al., 2001). The SBQ-R is a 4-item self-report measure assessing suicidality in adults. The SBQ-R can be used as a screening tool (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, 1999). The SBQ-R has been used with adolescents (Osman et al., 2001, Baczwaski, 2012) but does not include a separate adolescent version. The number of responses and response content varies for each question. Different responses are assigned a point number for a total score ranging from 3 to 18. Using a cutoff score of seven or greater, sensitivity reached 93% and specificity reached 95% (Osman et al., 2001). The SBQ-R demonstrates adequate internal consistency (α > .75) and adequate test-retest reliability over a  period of two weeks (r = .95; Cotton, Peters, & Range, 1995). The measure is available online (http://www.integration.samhsa.gov/images/res/SBQ.pdf).
