It’s always such an honor to co-present with Dr. Lisa Horowitz, one of the architects of the ASQ suicide screening tool. As a follow up to that conference, I’m posting some of the links here to make it easy for participants to find the tools they need to implement this life-saving tool.
I hope members of my tribe here on Emotionally Naked will promote this tool and suggest it to your doctor. Dr. Abernathy has been using this tool for about three years now. You can see Dr. Horowitz’ Abernathy data here.

These are handouts that Dr. Abernathy uses in his practice. He has combined his screening. So he uses two questions from the depression screening, two from the anxiety screening and the 5 questions from the ASQ suicide screening tool as an overall mental health screening tool.
