Columbia Protocol Training for Clinical Providers (C-SSRS) (Virtual Training)

Apr 25, 2024

Event Time: 12pm-1:30pm ET

N/A Virtual

The Columbia Protocol, also known as the Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS), supports suicide risk assessment through a series of simple, plain-language questions that anyone can ask. The answers help users identify whether someone is at risk for suicide, assess the severity and immediacy of that risk, and gauge the level of support that the person needs. Users of the tool ask people:

  • Whether and when they have thought about suicide (ideation)
  • What actions they have taken — and when — to prepare for suicide
  • Whether and when they attempted suicide or began a suicide attempt that was either interrupted by another person or stopped of their own volition

This webinar will provide an introduction to the CSSRS as a screening tool for suicide prevention.

Currently, a CE application is pending with the Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services for 1.5 CEs for Ohio licensed social workers, counselors, psychologists, prevention professionals, and registered nurses.
