Non-Clinical Suicide Assessment

Presented on Thursday, September 10th from 2pm-3:30pm ET
Brian Van Brunt, Ed.D., Makenzie Schiemann, M.S., and David Denino, LPC, NCC


Join Dr. Brian Van Brunt, Dave Denino, LPC, NCC, and Makenzie Schiemann, M.S. shared with you the creation of the Non-Clinical Assessment of Suicide (NAS). As counselors work more and more in a non-clinical capacity (falling under FERPA), there is an increased need to have an approach to assessment that is easy to use, can be applied consistently, reduces bias and provides clear direction for next steps in an evidenced based way. This easy to use expert system highlights the process of how to consistently and objectively assess a student at-risk for suicide. Those who attended the training will receive instructions on how to administer the NAS and apply it in their daily practice. They received a detailed training guide, a copy of the scoring template, a flowchart overview and reviewed a sample case study.

Learning Objectives


  • Explored the difference between a clinical, mental health suicide assessment and those conducted by non-clinical counselors
  • Identified risk factors for suicide and how to assess through an expert system
