Introduction: Suicide, defined as an act with a personal intent and full awareness, takes place among all age groups; however, the young and, in particular soldiers are more vulnerable. The present survey aims to find the validity and reliability of the Beck Suicide Scale Ideation (BSSI) among a group of Iranian soldiers.
Method: One hundred subjects were selected from the Infantry Forces in Tehran. All the soldiers were requested to complete the BSSI as well as Goldberg's General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-28). Data were analyzed by correlations and t-test methods.
Results: The results revealed that the two scales were significantly associated (r=0.76) and a high validity was also found for the BSSI (alpha Chronbach = 0.95).
Discussion: Overall, these preliminary results confirmed that the BSSI scale is valid enough to evaluate suicidal thoughts in soldiers.
