How It Works
The Suicide Risk Management Consultation Program (SRM) provides free consultation to both VA and community providers.
Through tailored, one-on-one support with consultants who hold years of experience with Veteran suicide prevention, providers have access to a collaborative and supportive space to discuss challenging treatment scenarios for Veterans at risk of suicide and to develop risk mitigation strategies.
The SRM Infographic can help strengthen an understanding of how SRM supports providers and to support Veterans.
SRM consults on topics including:
- Risk assessment
- Conceptualization of suicide risk
- Lethal means safety counseling
- Strategies for how to engage Veterans at high risk
- Best practices for documentation and provider support after a suicide loss (postvention)
