The current study examined whether common indicators of suicide risk differ between adolescents engaging in non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) who have and have not attempted suicide in an effort to enhance clinicians' ability to evaluate risk for suicide within this group. Data were collected from 540 high school students in the Midwest who completed the RADS, RFL-A, SIQ, and SHBQ as part of a larger adolescent risk project. Results suggest that adolescents engaging in NSSI who also attempt suicide can be differentiated from adolescents who only engage in NSSI on measures of suicidal ideation, reasons for living, and depression. Clinical implications of the findings are discussed.
