    Introduction: Roughly 800,000 people around the world die annually to suicide. Suicide risk has been studied for decades, but no risk-factors or a combination of risk-factors can reliably predict who is likely to make a suicide attempt in the future. To create effective treatments for suicidal thoughts and behaviours (STBs), STBs must be measured reliably. There is no information available regarding STB measures and assessments and their reliability in Icelandic. One “gold-standard” of STB measurements is the Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS). Aims: To observe if Icelandic translation of a modified C-SSRS is feasible in practice. Method: Two groups were compared in this pilot study. Clinical participants (N = 4) were obtained from independent psychological practice. Student participants (N = 10) were gathered from university. Time taken to administer the modified translated C-SSRS between groups, as well as time differences between ideation and behaviour history was observed to measure feasibility. Results: Clinical participants scored higher on average than the student sample across all measures. The average time taken to administer the modified Icelandic C-SSRS was 14.30 minutes (SD = 7.12) in the student sample, and 38.75 minutes (SD = 8.54) in the clinical sample. The clinical sample rated more ideation severity, frequency, duration, and controllability, as well as more history of suicidal behaviours compared to the student sample. Discussion: Results indicate that the measurement is indeed feasible for future research. Future researchers should build on this study to bring Icelandic healthcare workers closer to a comprehensive suicide risk assessment tool.
