Description: The Suicide Cognitions Scale (SCS) and multiple shortened versions of the scale (Suicide Cognitions Scale-Revised [SCS-R], Suicide Cognitions Scale-Short [SCS-S], and Brief Suicide Cognitions Scale [B-SCS])assess thoughts, perceptions, and beliefs that are commonly experienced by people who have attempted suicide. The scales are empirically supported indicators of increased vulnerability to suicidal behavior, and have been shown in multiple studies to be a better predictor of future suicide attempts than suicidal ideation. The scales can be used for the purposes of suicide risk screening, suicide risk assessment and monitoring, and research.
