Suicide is a significant public health problem in the United States, accounting for nearly 45,000 deaths per year,or 123 deaths per day. Over one million people actually make an attempt to lethally harm themselves every year. This serious problem impacts all nationalities, socioeconomic and educational levels, and all age groups in this country. The problem of suicide may never be eradicated in our society; yet this tragedy is nonetheless preventable in many cases through a careful assessment of risk.

Unfortunately, few mental health professionals feel adequately prepared to gauge the seriousness of a person’s threats of self-harm, and many signs of impending suicide often go undetected. Such shortcomings are further complicated by a host of commonly-held myths about what renders a person truly suicidal. In this training many of the myths surrounding suicidality will be debunked, and the most critical questions which should be used to evaluate the individual’s level of acute risk for suicide will be discussed.
