This is a summary of a study which hypothesized that subjects displaying elevated Suicide Probability Screening Scale (SPS) scores would display significantly higher levels of depression, state & trait anxiety & anger, high levels of negative emotionality & more irrational ideation. The results appeared to be supportive of several of the hypotheses advanced. An interesting finding was the lack of significance observed between scores on the Beck Depression Inventory & the SPS.
