In a pilot study, a sample of 211 suicide attempters were dichotomized into 51 diagnosed as depressive cases & 160 diagnosed as nondepressive cases. Their seriousness & intentionality were measured with a “Two-Part Scale”; an Interviewer-Rating-Form” which was composed of an “Intentionality-Seriousness-Measure-Scale” & the “Self-Rating-Form” which was also composed of an “Intentionality & Seriousness-Measure-Scale”. Depressed patients had higher values, with endogenous depressives the highest.
