Good episode? Give it some love!
In this episode, Dr. Graham Taylor is joined by Dr. Kelly Posner, the author of the Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale. Suicide prevention requires finding those who are suffering. The symptoms of depression can lead to suicide and 50% of people who commit suicide have seen their primary care doctor the month before they die. If we can be testing for suicide ideology like we test for blood pressure, we can correctly help those in need. The Columbia Scale questions are prescriptive enough for non-professionals, but flexible enough for the mental health professional to administer it. Suicide is a problem of our shared humanity, but it can be preventable.
