The aim is to build and evaluate the psychometric properties of a scale of resilience to suicide attempts (ERATS in Spanish) in people in the general population (N = 470) and in people who have made some attempt in the province of Jaen (N = 131), performing monthly monitoring on future attempts for 6 months in clinical population. The results show that the scale has built resilience differential operation as validation population, the scale and adapted to individuals who have made a suicide attempt (ERATS-18) has better psychometric properties and predictive capacity of the future retries accessible scale general population (ERATS-12). The results obtained are discussed and new job prospects arise within the scope of resilience to risk situations such as the suicide attempt.
