Much of the psychological research with suicidal patients has examined, individually or in combination, correlates and predictors of the various measures in the suicide process. The present study investigated suicidal risk as an outcome measure. Several questionnaires were administered to a sample of 94 soldiers, 61 of whom had manifested some suicidal symptoms. Using LISREL analysis, the data showed that the best model had suicide risk as directly influenced by depression and indirectly by impulsivity. 1992 The British Psychological Society
