Formed in September 2010, the Suicide Prevention Task Group has been leveraging the expertise of its members to strengthen existing efforts in suicide prevention for all age groups.  Efforts to date have included providing significant feedback for the NNDC Common Assessment Package in relation to measures assessing suicidality.  The group is currently initiating a new pilot study to examine the feasibility of the Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) within a multi-site setting, and its potential contributions to the field of suicide prevention.
