A new therapeutic model may be an alternative to lengthy hospital stays for adolescents who are acutely suicidal, according to study results published in Child and Adolescent Mental Health.
“The study provides promising findings that warrant further investigation of a brief, intensive crisis intervention model as an alternative to inpatient care for youth at risk for suicide,” Sandra M. McBee-Strayer, PhD, of The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Ohio, told Healio Psychiatry. “The significant reductions in suicidal ideation and improvements in functioning reported sets the stage for a randomized controlled trial investigating intensive crisis intervention as a viable treatment option for youth at risk for suicide.”
