Validation and psychometric properties of Suicide Behaviors Questionnaire-Revised (SBQ-R) in Iran. Asian J Psychiatr. 2019 Oct 24;47:101856 Authors: Amini-Tehrani M, Nasiri M, Jalali T, Sadeghi R, Ghotbi A, Zamanian H Abstract BACKGROUND: Suicide is increasing in young Iranian population, which necessitates the employing of valid, yet abridged instruments assessing the constellation of suicide-related behaviors. The study aimed at validating Suicide Behavior Questionnaire-Revised (SBQ-R) among Iranian undergraduates. METHODS: A total of 487 undergraduates were surveyed in 2018. Construct validity of SBQ-R was examined via confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), and Spearman's correlation with two single-item indices of suicide acceptability (SA) and lifetime suicidal ideation (LSI) was determined. Logistic regression and Kruskal-Wallis tests were used to examine the cut-off points (≥ 7 and ≥ 8) and categorizations as per item 1. RESULTS: The mean SBQ-R score was 5.79 ± 3.55. Cut-off points ≥ 7 and ≥ 8 categorized 150 (30.8%) and 123 (25.2%) samples with suicide risk, respectively. Women obtained significantly higher scores on all indices, except items 1 and 4. CFA confirmed the model with sound goodness-of-fit, with factor loadings of 0.70 to 0.83. Composite reliability and average variance extracted were 0.87 and 0.63, respectively. The SBQ-R's correlation with SA and LSI confirmed its concurrent validity. Regression analysis c...

Adolescents at risk for suicide are highly heterogeneous in terms of psychiatric and social risk factors, yet there has been little systematic research on risk profiles, which would facilitate recognition and the matching of patients to services. Our primary study aims were to identify latent class profiles of adolescents with elevated suicide risk, and to examine the association of these profiles with mental health service use (MHSU).
