Suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the United States, claiming the lives of nearly 45,000 people in 2016. It is the second leading cause of death among individuals between the ages of 10 and 34, and the fourth leading cause of death among individuals between the ages of 35 and 54. About 3% of adults (and a much higher percentage of youths) are entertaining thoughts of suicide at any given time; however, there is no absolute way to predict who will attempt or complete suicide. What's our role as clinicians and providers in all this?
The purpose of suicide risk assessment is to identify treatable and modifiable risks and protective factors that inform the patient’s and client's treatment and safety management. Yet, if the suicide assessment methodology is faulty, treatment and safety management will be adversely affected. Given the high stakes, getting the suicide risk assessment right is of critical importance.
