The Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale is an evidence-based screener that assesses a person’s risk for committing suicide. The screener is self-reported (though questions are phrased in an interview manner) and measures the severity and intensity of ideation as well as behavior and lethality. The Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale is part of a national and international public health initiative involving the assessment of suicidality. The CSSRS Risk Assessment is intended to help establish a person’s immediate risk of suicide and is used in acute care settings. The screener consists of 12 questions and takes less than 10 minutes to complete.
