Suicide Risk Screener for Parents

Parent version of the Suicide Risk Screener published by The Columbia Lighthouse Project to help identify risk and prevent suicide.


This document is a copy of the presentation from the suicide awareness informational meeting for parents. The meeting was held on September 13, 2018.


An important component of keeping youth safe following a stated or perceived risk for suicide is to assess the individual’s access to lethal means. While this is not an exclusive list, it is intended to help guide caregivers to assess their environment so that they may remove/restrict potential lethal means from the environment.
