Product Description

This vital resource--edited by Harvard Medical School's Douglas Jacobs, a nationally recognized expert on suicide and depression--is the definitive guide for helping mental health professionals determine the risk for suicide and appropriate interventions for suicidal or at-risk patients. Created primarily for mental health clinicians (with several chapters directed toward primary care physicians), the book is a hands-on guide for those who are often the first line of defense for assessing if a patient or client is suicidal.
