This website (www.suicide-risk-assessment.com) introduces the Suicide Risk Assessment (SRA) a 142-item, self-report assessment instrument or test, that takes 25 minutes to complete. From data (test answers) entry, it takes 3 minutes or less to computer-score and print four (4) page, SRA reports.
Suicide Risk Assessment (SRA) development was influenced by M. David Rudd's suicide theory and its peer-reviewed research. David Lang (2013) emphasized clinicians should use a suicide screening tool with patients who have co-existing concerns, like depression, anxiety, or substance (alcohol/drug) use. Sometimes, it is argued that by not administering a suicide risk assessment, a clinician is neglectful (Simon, 2002).
