This recording will focus on using the crisis response plan (CRP) for managing acute suicide risk, with at risk-individuals. We will review the current evidence base supporting the use of the CRP with veterans and active-duty military populations. Time will be spent reviewing specific strategies for conducting a patient-centered narrative assessment for assessing suicide risk and a tailored crisis response plan that prioritizes self-management strategies the patient can self-implement to reduce overall risk.
