Suicidality Modifiers Scale (SMS)


Suicidality Modifiers Scale (SMS)

Developed by David V. Sheehan and Jennifer M. Giddens


The Suicidality Modifiers Scale (SMS) assesses the presence of impulsive suicidality, hopelessness, loss of enjoyment, and overwhelmed feeling.  All of these can compound suicidality. The SMS investigates factors that can influence these domains of suicidality. The SMS may be particularly helpful in assessing impulsive suicidality and hopelessness in a way that is very sensitive to change and may provide an early warning sign of impending worsening of suicidality before it becomes apparent in other ways. It is designed for use in clinical research studies and in clinical settings.
