  • Implementing standardized suicide risk screening and assessment
  • Low-intensity interventions for prevention of suicide attempt

Research Priorities

The Suicide Prevention Interest Group is focused on a series of high priority topics aligning with national recommendations released in the Prioritized Research Agenda for Suicide Prevention. Specifically, our group seeks to identify clinical and health services factors that allow us to better predict suicide attempt and death as well as engage experts, stakeholders, and patients to develop and test large-scale suicide prevention interventions within and across health system settings.
