The aim of the present study is to determine the mediating role of the life goals in the relationship between parent acceptance/rejection and suicide probability. The study sample is composed of 394 college students (51.8% female, 48.2% male) whose ages are between 18-28 (M = 21.44, SD = 1.66). Parent Acceptance Rejection Scale, Life Goals Scale and Suicide Probability Scale were used in the data collection phase. The results of the analyses showed expected significant relationships between the variables. In the model test results of the analysis, sub-scales of the Life Goals Scale partially mediate the relationship between parent acceptance/rejection and suicide probability. Research findings can be used in suicide intervention programs which is practiced to understand and prevent suicidal behavior.
