414 Improving the Evaluation of Suicide Risk*

Mental health professionals recognize the importance of identifying risk and protective factors for individuals at risk for suicide, but they may not have been trained in how to synthesize this information. This session will focus on increasing skills in risk formulation by considering how acute and chronic risk factors, risk state and status, resources, and foreseeable changes interact to influence risk level.

Educational Objectives

  • Describe how risk state, risk status, resources, and foreseeable changes influence risk formulation in individuals at risk for suicide
  • Discuss how chronic risk factors influence risk formulation and action plans
  • Explain changes to make in documentation about risk formulation
