Validation of the Farsi version of the suicide ideation and behavior scale

  • \(\bf Objective:\) Suicide ideation and suicide attempts are prevalent in Farsi speaking populations. The present study aimed at validating the Farsi version of the Suicide Ideation and Behavior Scale (SIBS). \(\bf Methods:\) Reliability and validity of the Farsi version of the SIBS were established in a highly burdened Afghan student sample (\(\it N\) = 279). Internal consistency, convergent and discriminant validity were investigated, and confirmatory factor analysis was conducted. \(\bf Results:\) The Farsi version of the SIBS was shown to have a unidimensional structure with excellent internal consistency, as well as good convergent and divergent validity. \(\bf Discussion:\) The results suggest that the SIBS is a brief, reliable, and valid measure of current suicidal ideation and behavior that can be used in Farsi speaking populations.
