The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report suicide may be on the rise in the United States, with a 33% increase in deaths to suicide between 1999 and 2017.

Suicide risk assessment and suicide prevention training are important skills for most types of mental health professionals to keep in their toolkit.
