A description of and pilot data for a new adjunctive intervention designed to reduce suicidal behavior among high-risk individuals are presented. The Coping Long Term with Active Suicide Program (CLASP) has three major components: (1) three individual, in-person meetings, (2) one significant other/family meeting, and (3) 11 brief (15–30 minute) phone contacts with the patient and his/her significant other. Open trial and pilot randomized trial data provide preliminary evidence that CLASP is a feasible, acceptable, and efficacious intervention to reduce suicidal behavior.
