Nowadays, cybersuicide shapes a particularly significant social and medical problem. The so-called “groups of death” carrying out their activities through social networks predetermine an unprecedented risk to the life and health of the younger generation. In connection with the need to use reliable psychometric methods of screening and diagnosing suicidal behavior patterns among users of the global network, this article describes the process of validation of the original questionnaire assessing the psycho-emotional state of Internet users. The latter contains 40 statements grouped into 8 domains: “Depression”, “Interpersonal Problems”, “Relationship with Parents”, “Negative Self-Evaluation”, “Sense of Solitude”, “Demonstrativeness”, “Affective Instability”, “Internet Content of Suicidal Content”. The confirmator factor analysis confirms the good consistency of the structure of the questionnaire. The score of the severity levels of the corresponding disturbances are identified. Conclusion: The proposed original questionnaire can be effectively used for the initial diagnosis of suicidal behavior among Internet users.
