by

in

Since 1999, the age-adjusted suicide rate in the United States has increased 33%, from 10.5 per 100,000 standard population to 14.0 per 100,000” (Ryan & Oquendo, 2020, p 88). Suicide risk assessment is high stakes for the PMHNP and is a part of every psychiatric clinical encounter. To participate in this week’s discussion, please do the following:
Read this week’s reading assignment.
View the videos “Suicide Assessment of Client with Initially Subtle Warning Signs of Suicide” and “Suicide Assessment by Counselor Supervisor Not Familiar with Client” on YouTube.

Discussion – Suicide
Respond to the following in a minimum of 550 words:
Using your text, the suicide screening tools, and the suicide safety planning tools, compare and contrast the warning signs for suicide in each video.
Identify elements of safety planning (or lack thereof) in each example.
What might you have done differently in each case, if anything?

Note: The proper terminology is “death by suicide” rather than “commit suicide,” as you heard in the videos.
