Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS)

Three versions of the Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale are available for use in clinical practice. The Lifetime/Recent version allows practitioners to gather lifetime history of suicidality as well as any recent suicidal ideation and/or behavior. The Since Last Visit version of the scale assesses suicidality since the patient’s last visit. The Screener version of the C-SSRS is a truncated form of the full version.
