This study investigated the factor structure of the Adult Suicidal Ideation Questionnaire & the Reasons for Living Inventory in a sample of 205 adult psychiatric patients. Confirmatory factor analyses provided moderate support for the construct validity of each instrument. Results suggest that both instruments may be useful screening tests for suicidal behaviour in psychiatric long-term care inpatient samples. (38 refs.)
