A suicide assessment is used to find out whether a person is at risk for a suicide attempt. Questions asked during a suicide assessment may include:
If a person has thoughts of harming himself or herself, the health professional always asks if he or she has access to the materials needed to follow through with those plans.
If a depressed person has thoughts of suicide, a plan for suicide, and access to the materials needed to follow through with the plan, he or she is at great risk and should be admitted to a hospital for safety.
