SPRC and SMI Advisor have collaborated on the new guide, Suicide and Serious Mental Illness: An Overview of Considerations, Assessment, and Safety Planning. Developed for both suicide prevention coordinators and mental health clinicians, this guide provides an overview of the considerations and suicide prevention measures at the intersection of suicide and serious mental illness.

  • Suicide prevention coordinators can use this resource for prevention planning, informing care transitions, and promoting best practices in clinical settings.
  • Clinicians can find helpful information and links to additional resources on suicide-safer care for those who live with serious mental illness.
