Young adult follow-up of adolescent girls in juvenile justice using the Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale.
Kerr, D.~~Gibson, B.~~et al.
Severely delinquent adolescent girls (n = 166) participated in a treatment trial and repeated assessments over time. Lifetime suicide attempt history was measured using the C-SSRS in early adulthood (n = 144; 7Ð12 years postbaseline). Nonclinician raters showed strong interrater reliability using the C-SSRS. Self-reports, caseworker reports, and caregiver reports of girls’ suicide attempt histories collected at baseline correlated with adult participants’ recollections of their baseline attempt histories. Suicidal ideation measured prospectively across a 7- to Ð12-year period was associated with retrospectively reported suicide attempt across the same period.
