Brief Summary:
The primary purpose of the current study is to rigorously test the psychometric properties of the INQ-12 and ACSS (Van Orden et al., 2008) in Veterans, something which has not been done to date. Factor structure, internal consistency, convergent and discriminant validity will all be assessed. Secondary goals are to determine if burdensomeness, failed belongingness, and acquired capability are distinct versus overlapping constructs and whether or not values mediate the relationship between reasons for living and suicide risk. Lastly, the inclusion of the Beck Scale for Suicidal Ideation (BSS) allows us to analyze participants' responses to explore whether or not participants can be grouped into those who want to die by suicide because they want to escape their problems and those who want to die to influence other people.

Participants will be recruited from the Denver VA Medical Center (DVAMC), regardless of clinic.



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Internal consistency reliability. [ Time Frame: two years ]
    The internal consistency reliability statistics will be calculated for all study variables to confirm the measures are reliable.

  2. Convergent validity. [ Time Frame: two years ]
    Convergent validity of the Interpersonal Needs Questionnaire (INQ) will be determined by examining the correlation between it and the other study measures.

  3. Convergent validity. [ Time Frame: two years ]
    Convergent validity of the acquired capability of suicide scale (ACSS) will be determined by correlating it with all other measures.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Discriminant validity. [ Time Frame: two years ]
    Discriminant validity of the interpersonal needs questionnaire (INQ) will be determined by examining correlations with measures of unrelated constructs.

  2. Suicide risk. [ Time Frame: two years ]
    Examine the effects of scores on the SLP on the relationship between reasons that people have for living and the potential for engaging in at-risk behavior.

  3. Discriminant validity [ Time Frame: two years ]
    Examine the discriminant validity of the acquired capability for suicide scale (ACSS) by examining correlations between it and measures of unrelated constructs.
