Suicide is one of the leading causes of death worldwide and the 11th leading cause of death in the United States (source). The Center for Suicide Research and Prevention (CSRP) is a multidisciplinary, practice - based center aimed at advancing and implementing innovative new suicide prevention research. It will support the development, deployment, and evaluation of practice-ready and clinically-focused interventions aimed at improving the identification and effective treatment of patients at risk of suicide. This is a collaborative effort between researchers, clinicians, and stakeholders at the Center for Precision Psychiatry, Mass General Brigham, and Harvard University.
