This suicide assessment can be used by mental health professionals during their first contact with an individual at risk of suicidal behavior and completed suicide. The five-step assessment includes identification of risk and protective factors; conducting an inquiry about suicidality; determining level of risk and selecting an appropriate intervention; and documenting the process, including a follow-up plan.
