Sharing Tools and Assessments for Suicide Prevention Worldwide

Dr. Kelly Posner Gerstenhaber explains how the Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) is used to assesses a person's suicide risk.
  • Overview

    According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, 44,193 Americans die by suicide each year.  The Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) has been developed as a means of helping users identify whether someone is at risk for suicide, assessing the severity and immediacy of that risk, and gauging the level of support that the person needs.

    Host Dr. Brian McDonough talks with Dr. Kelly Posner Gerstenhaber, Founder and Director of the Columbia Lighthouse Project who disseminates the C-SSRS worldwide as a tool for suicide prevention.
