Beck Scale for Suicide Ideation®
Quickly evaluate suicidal ideation.
The BSS measures attitudes and behaviors that clinicians routinely consider when assessing a patient’s suicide risk. This instrument also reveals specific suicidal characteristics that require greater clinical scrutiny. The BSS can be administered with the BDI®-II and the BHS® for a more complete evaluation.
Five Screening Items, 21 Test Items
The scale is made up of 21 items. Five screening items reduce the length and the intrusiveness of the questionnaire for patients who are nonsuicidal.
