Suicidal risk evaluation for 79 patients included the use of the Sad Persons Scale, the Suicidal Intent Scale & interviewer reaction according to Motto. Compared with nonrepeaters, repeaters were less often employed, lacked social support, had relational problems & were in ongoing treatment. Repeaters more often acted impulsively & their suicidal intent tended to be less severe than that of nonrepeaters. Interviewers tended to react with negative or neutral feelings toward repeaters.
