Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale

Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS). The scale is a free, simple, scientifically validated tool that anyone can use to determine whether a veteran is at risk for suicide and how to immediately respond, just by asking three to six questions. The C-SSRS is being used by all of the military services and many VA hospitals. And it has been endorsed, recommended, or adopted by the Department of Defense, the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institutes of Health, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
