This study was designed to examine whether gender differences seen in other measures designed to assess suicide behavior are also found in scores on the Suicide Resilience Inventory-25 (SRI-25; Osman, 2002). The second goal of this study was to examine the relationships between scores on the SRI-25 and other self-report measures of (a) protective factors and (b) risk factors. The analyses were conducted for the separate genders. Participants were 124 men and 236 women college undergraduates. One-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was conducted to compare gender differences on the SRI-25 total and subscales scores. The results indicated that there were significant gender differences on the SRI-25 total scale scores and on two of the three subscale scores (internal protective and external protective subscales). In terms of the relationships between the SRI-25 total scores and measures of protective and risk factors, significant gender differences were found on (a) the protective measure and (b) in only one of the three risk measures.
