The Life Attitudes Schedule (LAS) assesses the degree to which individuals engage in risk-taking or suicidal behaviours.  It is based on the theoretical construct of suicide proneness: a single domain to which life-enhancing and life-threatening behaviours belong.

Half of the items on the 96-item form assess life-enhancing behaviours, while the others assess life-threatening behaviours.  Items are organised according to content category and type of behaviour.  The four content categories include Health-Related, Death-Related, Injury-Related, and Self-Related behaviours.  Items within each content category represent three behaviour types.  Thoughts, Feelings, and Actions.

Short Version - The 24-item LAS:SF is ideal for use as a screening tool.  It includes the same content categories as the long version.
