Abstract: Reasons for Living (RFL) are considered as one of the resilience factors for the suicide. The aim of the study is to assess the relationship between adolescents’ suicide behaviour and RFL in the context of traditional suicide risk factors. Methods:A representative sample of 743 9 – 11 grade students from Kaunas city and Kaunas district schools filled The Reasons for Living Inventory for Adolescents (RFL-A) and answered questions from Lifestyle and Coping Questionnaireand Behaviour in School – Aged Children Survey.Findings:The RFL-A and suicidal behaviour were significantly negatively correlated. Girls indicated having more reasons for living as compared to boys. However, prognostic value for suicidal behaviour of RFL-A was weak when traditional suicide risk variables (alcohol consumption and drugs, behavioural problems, such as bullying, depression, suicides in family history etc.) were taken into account. Discussion:The value of RFL-A as a resilient factor calls for further studies
