Use the Suicide Assessment to examine various factors related to a client's risk of suicidality. Each checkbox represents a risk factor that has a strong positive correlation to suicidal behavior. Additionally, several self-report Likert scale questions ask a client to rate other risk areas from 1 to 5, with a "1" indicating lower risk, and "5" indicating high risk. This worksheet can help to ensure that you're covering several important bases when questioning about suicidality, while also generating a valuable piece of documentation.
This assessment is only intended as an aid to help guide a comprehensive suicide judgment. This assessment should be completed by a professional, and its findings are in no way diagnostic. A person may be at risk of suicide even if they do not exhibit any of the listed warning signs.
