Columbia Scale Training, 9/27, 3:00-4:00 pm -The Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (CSSRS) was developed as a simple and evidence-based way to screen for suicidal ideation and behavior. This tool can be used by individuals with no prior mental health training to determine whether someone is at risk of suicide. The questions are in simple, plain language that anyone can ask. The C-SSRS is designed for use around the world for research, communities, healthcare, schools, first responders, families, friends, and neighbors. Sponsored by the Center for Wellbeing.
