In the United States, more than 47,000 deaths occur each year because of suicide. In 2019 there were over 1.3 million suicide attempts. Each day, approximately 86 Americans will die by suicide. Suicide is now the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S., which is greater than the rate of death by homicide or AIDS-related deaths. This course will explore suicide risk and will review different assessment tools to aid in consistent suicide risk assessment.
