To estimate the associations of hope, hopelessness, & suicidality, 206 undergraduates completed the Reasons for Living Inventory, the Hopelessness Scale, & the Hope Scale. Significant correlations indicated that as hope increased, hopelessness decreased. Those who scored as relatively more suicidal had relatively fewer feelings of total hope & more hopelessness. Scores on coping beliefs & hope rather than those on hopelessness or other reasons for living were most related to suicidality.
