C-SSRS Training

ABOUT THE C-SSRS:

The Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) (Screener/Triage Version) is a simple, 6-question assessment of suicidal thinking and behavior to help first responders, faculty and staff identify students in psychological crisis that might need immediate intervention.  The C-SSRS is evidence-based and easy to administer for non-mental health trained campus members.

The TCNJ Mental Health Promotion and Suicide Prevention Task Force offers annual training on the administration of the C-SSRS.  For those who missed the training or who may want a refresher course on the administration of the C-SSRS, there is online training available (see below).
