Innovations in CLINICAL NEUROSCIENCE [ V O L U M E 1 1 , N U M B E R 9 – 1 0 , S E P T E M B E R – O C T O B E R 2 0 1 4 ] 166 Result 2: S-STS total and time spent in suicidality. Figure 2 illustrates the relationship between the S-STS total score and the time spent in suicidality. There is an ascending relationship between the S-STS total and time spent in suicidality. An exponential regression trendline is the best fit to the dataset. Discussion. At the high end of the S-STS total score, there was exponentially more time spent in suicidality. The subject stated that at higher S-STS total scores, she had often completed her suicidal planning ideation and had moved on to engaging in preparatory behaviors. These preparatory behaviors took more time than the planning ideation. Result 3: Global severity of suicidality and time spent in suicidality. Figure 3 illustrates the relationship between the global severity of suicidality and the time spent in suicidality. There is an ascending relationship between the global severity of suicidality and time spent in suicidality. A power regression trendline is the best fit to the dataset. Discussion. At the top end of the global severity of suicidality, there was disproportionally greater amount of time spent in suicidality. The TABLE 1.
