Abstract

The authors describe a simple, rapid method by which patients with any suicidal ideas can determine for themselves and the evaluator what risk actually exists. The patient states how long he is willing to stay alive, without qualification, in the form of a decision rather than a promise or agreement with the evaluator. This method has been used successfully in various settings and with seriously ill patients.
