Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS)
The C-SSRS was designed to provide a prospective, standardized measure of suicidality. The scale allows clinicians and researchers alike to assess the severity and lethality of suicidal behaviors and ideations, and can be used to monitor treatment outcomes and establish suicide risk in a variety of research and clinical settings.
