Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS)

Identify Risk.

Prevent Suicide.

The Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS), the most evidence-supported tool of its kind, is a simple series of questions that anyone can use anywhere in the world to prevent suicide. 

Just Ask.

YOU can save a life.

The first step is to ask. We used research and real-world experience to determine the right questions to ask to identify people of all ages at risk for suicide. The C-SSRS is designed for use around the world for  research communities and healthcare, and  families, friends, and neighbors.
