A suicidal crisis results when an individual can no longer cope with a situation, becomes anxious, & thought processes become irrational to the point where suicide is seen as the only alternative. The author presents a 5-step problem-solving model for intervention that is aimed at establishing a relationship, accepting & addressing emotions, exploring the problem, discussing alternatives, & assessing the risk of suicide.
