Objectives: The present study aims to determine whether the association between family function and suicidal ideation on one hand and correlation of family functions and hopelessness on the other hand can be supposed that hopelessness acts as a moderator in the association between family functions and suicidal ideation.

Methods: For this, 373 accessible Shahid Beheshti students were selected and measured with self-reporting means. After performing Family Assessment Devices, Beck Hopelessness Scale and Beck scale for suicidal ideation, the gathered data were analyzed through simple correlation and hierarchical regression by SPSS 19.

Results: There are significant positive correlations between understanding total family function and hopelessness, family function and suicidal ideation and also between hopelessness and suicidal ideation of students. Therefore, hopelessness has a moderating role in the association between understanding family function and suicidal ideation.

Conclusions: The association between family function and suicidal ideation increases at higher levels of hopelessness while in lower levels of hopelessness, this association is not significant.
