C-SSRS is preventing suicide around the world

The Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) is a unique suicide risk assessment tool that supports suicide risk assessment through a series of simple, plain-language questions that anyone can ask.

The answers help users identify whether someone is at risk for suicide, assess the severity and immediacy of that risk, and gauge the level of support that the person needs.

C-SSRS was first developed in 2007 at Columbia University and has been endorsed, recommended, or adopted by...

“The advent of the C-SSRS and its dissemination could be seen as really a watershed moment, like the introduction of antibiotics. [The C-SSRS] has played a comparable role when it comes to mental illness and perhaps its most tragic consequence, suicide.”

Former President, American Psychiatric Association

Research shows that mental health literacy promotes early action and better life outcomes

Mental health problems are prevalent and consequential, yet widely misunderstood and unaddressed.

• 44% teens struggles with their mental health
• 75% of lifetime mental illness begins in adolescence
• 50% of those struggling never seek help

Decades of research show that mental health literacy (knowledge about the recognition, management, and prevention of mental health conditions) is proven to drive early action and therefore positive youth outcomes like increased graduation rates, decreased incarceration, decreased substance use, and more.
