Not every client who enters the clinical setting will be experiencing suicidal ideation. However, it is important to be aware that higher rates of suicide do occur in the adult male and elderly/aging adult male populations (Hedegaard et al., 2021). So, what does this mean for practice? Social workers must be aware of the warning signs and use those signs to gauge whether a formal risk assessment is needed.

A suicide risk assessment is one of the most vital tools you will ever use as a social worker. The questions may seem simple on the surface, but they can facilitate an open discussion about mental health while supporting suicide prevention. Some agencies use their own system for assessing suicide, whereas others employ the widely distributed and evidence-based Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS).

<
For this Discussion, you engage with a new client via interactive media and use the C-SSRS to screen them for suicide risk.
